In Reply to: Hmmm...Is Newspaper As Good A Substrate As We Think posted by bxherp on May 11, 2003 at 17:32:45:
I remember hearing (don't remember where), that the black ink they use in the black & white sections of the paper is a non-toxic, biodegradable, and possibly even organic, ink. The color pages may or may not be more questionable. I use newspaper for my iguana, but aspen for all of my snakes. I have, at times, separated out the pages and only used the b&w paper. Duffy
:Hey everyone... Happy Mother's Day to you all including our slithery friends. Something came to mind today as I was cleaning the cages of my corns and kings. I use newspaper as there substrate because I have them all in sweater bins. However, as I was laying the clean newspaper to each of the cages I notice that I would have ink on my fingers. Now I don't know if it was because I was using the New York City Daily News but has anyone notice this before? Is it possible that the ink cAn also be going into our snake's blood stream and may possibly getting them sick?I know this is an outrageous thought but whats your opinion?- ELvy
