3 ft female intergrade lubricus/infuscatus.

Hi Edwin,
I keep a trio of Aspidelaps lubricus ssp and a pair of Aspidelaps scutatus and I use shredded aspen
mostly. I have used crushed walnut shells in the past, which is much more naturalistic but I found it imposible to keep the substarte off of food, especially when your CCs tend to drag it around their cage before swallowing(gumps:-). If you plan on feeding in a seperate containor then crushed walnut shells or Desert Blend(same thing except with a brand name tacked on and a higher price tag)would be the best. Looks like sand yet is supposedly digestable.

Anyway, good luck and let me know if you need anymore help.

All the best,
Jeremy

:I've been out of the loop for a while and it appears Susan Hunter's Aspidelaps site is no more. Can any of you lubricus keepers recommend a good substrate for this species? I'd like to keep it as natural as possible. Suggestions are very much appreciated!
