: ::Question 1: What do you prefer for the substrate of your cages? Why?
:aspen, for a couple of reasons -
:1) easier to clean than paper :2) alterna (and other snake) can burrow into it, and seem to be more calm in aspen.
:drawbacks: :1) i don't think most herpers (myself included) keep an aspen-bedded cage quite as clean as a folded-newspaper cage :2) an occassional snake seems to get aspen dust in the tear ducts or nostrils, causing problems
