      Re:Coconut shell

      The crushed coconut shell substrate is a good one, although I have only used it inside my house for a pet boa. I do not use it in the snake shop.. It is pretty expensive.

      But is looks great and the boa seems to love it.
      To gain knowledge is good, but to share knowledge is wise

            it is good stuff and i used it in my ball pythons cage for a few months, but like clay already stated it is not cheap and i found that aspen and cypress mulch was just more suited for my animals needs.

              [/quote]is that mulch eazy to get ? or do you have to order it online ? only thing the pet shops around here carry is zoo-med reptile bark and a lizzard bark i think its t-rex.

                you can buy cypress mulch at any garden center and i think even home depot carries it. a pet store by me carries it and it has already been heat treated. if you buy it from a garden center you will have to bake it to kill off any little pests that may be living in it. cypress is cheap to buy and is great for humidity. i now use it in all but one of my cages.
