Zoo Med Aspen Snake Bedding features soft shavings that fluff up to give your pet volume to slither, dig, crawl, or hop through! Helps to hold back unwanted smells and makes poop scooping easy. The dense structures allows your pet to make burrows that give them security and changes in the surrounding. Won't poke your pet's soft bellies or let off overwhelming dust. To use dump product into the terrarium and spread 2 inches deep. For heftier snakes or herps layer up to 4 inches to give them that extra cushion.
