Empty contents of aspen bedding into your terrarium. Spread bedding over the entire bottom of terrarium for a minimum 2" depth. With very large, heavy snakes, you may need up to 4" depth.

Clean water should be provided at all times. Provide a water dish that allows enough room for your snake to coil up in, taking care to avoid a situation where overflowing occurs when snake is submerged.

We recommend feeding your snake in a separate feeding container. This prevents them from accidentally ingesting the substrate, resulting in impaction.

Clean habitat daily and remove any stool or other waste. If an offensive odor persists, replace all bedding. Zoo Med recommends replacing all Aspen snake bedding every two to three months or more often if needed.

  • Finally! A bedding my skink loves

    By on

    I have been through so many different types of beddings: cypress mulch, fir bark, and paper bedding. Cypress mulch felt too sharp i didnt want my skink to stab her eye out and the fir bark gave me so many splinter no idea how... but finally! Aspen bedding is soft and hold heat well and she's constantly roaming under it and making burrows. Totally satisfied:)

  • Nice but pricey

    By on

    I normally buy the giant bag of aspen bedding at our local pet store for 12-14 dollars. I decided to give this bedding a try and love it! I have 2 very happy ball pythons. Only reason this isn't a 5 star is due to the price. If it was a larger bag it would be worth it to continue to buy it. Maybe a bigger bag and better pricing in the future? Other then the price, great product!

    I love the fact that this large bag (2 changes) is the price I normally pay for the smaller bag at the pet shop. This is the only bedding I have ever used. Thank you

  • the best for snakes in particular

    By on

    I have used other beddings for my snake that have irritated his skin and face (pine and paper). This is a pure product that is made specifically for snakes. I won't use anything else.

  • Great product, bad price

    By on

    Aspen shavings work great for my snakes, but these were so expensive. If you buy them in the rodent section they're not as pricey
