PostSubject: question on bedding    Sun Jan 13, 2013 10:25 am

ive talked to lots of breeders about different types of bedding for ballpythons i use bogus paper and it works awesome one breeder i talked to uses kiln dried pine and has done so for years and years he suggested if you use it it has to be kiln dried being the oils are too wet with normal pine question is i have to wait two weeks until i can order some bogus paper since i already have kiln dried pine for the breeder rats whats everyone opinion on this stuff obviously its not hurting the breeders snakes he has used it for years any info would be apreciated and if anyone has used it info on it would be great i wont use aspen anymore being my snakes like to dump their bowles quiet often the paper is awesome

Honestly I use newspaper for my balls, cheap ans readily available and doesn't bother them a bit. I know other people have said that the newspaper text will start to rub off on them but I have not noticed it with mine...

Ive seen Ink rub off on the snakes and ofcourse doesnt do much of anything else. I wont use any type of pine regardless, if in a pinch paper towels work well

Baby racks all have paper towels. Adult racks all have Kraft Bogus paper. The Bogus paper is thicker than newsprint and does a good job for me. I calculated it cost me about 5 cents per week per snake to use Bogus. I buy in bulk.
