Re: very strange behavior of my python

Kiln dried pine shavings have been used for decades in the hobby and doesn't have toxicity issues...but the bark would probably not be a good first choice.

sorry cant understand (
Just the sphagnum, no paper. The paper will rot underneath the moss.

Sorry, what other bedding types are available in your country? I know some of the beddings we have here in the US aren't available in other countries, or are hard to find.

I hear that a lot, but surely the oils are still there? If it were to get wet or heated up, surely that would release the oils? You can evaporate water, but I'm not sure you can just evaporate the aromatics away.

@bigsnakegirl785, so sphagnum is better than paper for carpet?
Sorry.

Oils vapour off during the process. A side note- lignocel has pine in it, yet it's very popular in europe.

Re: very strange behavior of my python

My snake again behave herself unusually. 5 fays ago she ate. Small box, full dark, 5 secs ans she attacked quail. After that she was as in told in a first post. After 2 days she come out from hide box and crawl all night. Next day my Nephew came and I get my snake on my hands and after 10 sec let her crawl back. After that 3 days she dont leave her hide box.
it's feeding time should I get her out of her box and feed her or should I wait her coming out?

Re: very strange behavior of my python

The behaviour you are explaining is not unusual. It's pretty normal for a small young snake to want to hide, especially after being moved into a large enclosure and with being handled. The move to the newer enclosure is pretty recent, and unless you have added a LOT more clutter since those pictures, your snake will probably remain hidden for a lot of the time. As long as it is eating and illness isn't present, everything is fine. I don't know what you mean by getting her out of the box to feed. Do you mean that you feed in a separate cage?

usually yes.
but yesterday I saw she was looking out so I move her to a branch and she took her meal from a plate without complete dark.
so this is was first time she swallow prey on a branch. The only problem she took quail at the middle of a row.
