:After rereading the information (or lack there of) in your posts, you recommended taking a natural wood product out of the wild. Not bothering to mention any sort of possible contamination factors that could prove to be fatal to reptiles. Like possibly parasites, chemical toxins (weed killer and the like), possible natural toxins in the wood, bug infestations, any sort of poison ivy that may have left secretions no the wood, and list goes on.
:All this unmentioned RISK in your mind is much safer than the artificial products that I recommended?
:Not to mention the fact that artificial is much easier to decontaminate between animals. Wood products will soak up any liquid that gets on them and will be virtually impossible to remove between animals.
:I guess that would explain a few things about your husbandry practices and advice.

"Tim claims to have talked to Danny privately about it."

Go for it, I dare you. Call him. So I can prove you wrong AGAIN.
