The substrates I alternate between for my colubrids is aspen or Carefresh...though neither looks particularly "natural", but they can burrow real easily into it. For my Rosy boas I use crushed walnut shell, and see no other reason I couldn't use it with the Pits, but it doesn't hold a burrowing tunnel like the aspen and Carefresh. The walnut does look more natural however, like coarse sand or fine gravel, and is a very attractive rust brown color. It's moderately absorbent for snake poops and cleans easily. Never had any problems with any of my snakes on these products.

: I am currently using aspen as a substrate for both My Northern Pine and Black Pine. I was wondering if there where safe alternatives to aspen other than pine or newspaper. Something that is realistic.
: I read in the latest issue of Reptile Magazine about straw and non-organic sand in refrence to Gophers...
