    Whole newspaper? But they like to burrow. I would just shred some up for them.

    All my snakes are on T Rex Sani Chips. It has almost no dust, is very absorbant, and clumps easily.

    When I have used news paper I put in several layers and the snakes seem to be quite happy getting in between the layers.

    I would go with care fresh too. I used it for my red tail boa and blood python. It holds humidity well too when wet. I didnt get too much dust out of my bag.

    Ditto. My RTB is kept on layered newspaper and she burrows under it when she wants to.

    It's what her breeder recommended. My brother has a sibling of hers and keeps it on shredded newspaper. The breeder also ok'd that, but when I was over at his place last night the bedding was a little too damp from high humidity building up. Whether it's because he doesn't have enough ventilation or because the shredding process helps hold humidity, I'm not sure. He's planning on getting her an actual cage and reg. lid though so we'll see.
    A righteous man does not need a law, and an unrighteous man cannot keep one.
