I use fine-cut aspen shavings which are cheap (in bulk), very clean, very easy, and very ingestible. I solve this by seperating all my snakes into tupperware conatiners for feeding. The prey can't hide and the snake can't eat the substrate. So far, this method has worked great for me. But what works for me, may not work for others...
Reptile carpeting is basicilly astro-turf designed for reptiles except not near as spongey. I've used it on a couple of occassions. It's just so institutional looking... I guess that's the same reason I've never used paper towels or newspaper.
The "Lizard Litter" I'm keeping my Mangroves on is nice but it's kind of dusty when dry and muddy when wet. It looks nice and holds moisture well. If I ever keep a Regina or Farancia, I'll use this.
On a completely non-Nerodia note, I keep my Lyre Snake on Calci-sand which is great for arid snakes. It provides a perfect thermal gradient and is completely digestible. Fecal matter clumps and dries very quickly and it keeps the ambient humidity low too, which is good for the Lyre. If you ever get a sand boa...I digress...
