"As a professional reptile breeder with more than 20 years of experience I have tried every bedding substrate available to the reptile community. Reptile enthusiasts looking for safe bedding that helps maintain humidity, is absorbent, easy to clean and affordable need to use SerpenTurf cypress. As a natural substrate I have found that animals kept on fresh SerpenTurf tend to shed more cleanly and feed better. For the past five years almost every breeder we keep (including 100% of our ball pythons) has been kept onSerpenTurf. We swear by it and seldom use anything else for our animals.
