Ok, here is the deal. I have a fairly large collection of snakes, and I am concerned about all of the confliting information on bedding types. I am currently using screened pine shavings in all of my cages as are many of the worlds top breaders. But recently I have read online that pine shaving may cause health problems, and as such I am considering changing to cypress mulch if I can find a retailer for it in bulk. (I go through approx 2.5cu/ft per month).
I would like some of your all's thoughts on this. I have reasearched and nearly everyone seems to agree on cypress as a good substrate, while no one seems to be able to agree on pine or aspen. I would appreciate anyones thoughts on this as well as any information on suppliers of cypress.
