    Haha Caesar is always needy. The guy demands food or pettings. And every once in a while i like to get him all worked up by flicking his tail.....of course after he knows it me doing it.

    Re: Gene finally has a thread!

    So it had been an adventure since we got into the house. Feel like a bad snake parent but I haven't had nearly as much time as I had. The previous owners sucked at life and could do simple things in life. The yard is mostly mud and it's a big corner lot. Anyways, the hiuse is a split level or a raised ranch. So when you walk in the front door you either go up or down. Half if the basement is about 4' under the ground and the back half is a walk out. I'm fighting humidity in general. It's always so high even with a dehumidifier running. Doesn't help that it was 68* out Sunday and still 90% humidity. Genes enclosure is in top and has high humidity. I haven't misted and even emptied 90% of his bowl. I get so much humidity on the door and it drips onto the track and leaks onto the bottom. However Tinas is just fine. I'm thinking about switching to aspen. What do I need to know about it? Never had a snake on it, so any specific brand? Do I need to get the stuff in the reptile department or can I get the aspen im the rodent section of pets mart? Pictures were of the glass before I cleaned it and the moisture 5 minutes after.

    How damp do you keep the coco chips? After moving to MS I donít know if Iíve had to mist any of my cages at all. Been keeping everyone on aspen, newspaper, or very lightly dampened coco chips and maintained 65-70% humidity. ~80%+ when I use the coco, which will be again soon.
    As for aspen, try American Excelsior from mills fleet farm online. Giant 7 cubic feet bag for like $7. It will last forever with two 4í cages. Any old aspen would work Iím sure though. If itís got a picture of a snake on it it just increases the price by like 700% hahaha! Just be sure thereís no pine involved. Shouldnít be an issue though

    This is the aspen used for years....https://www.fleetfarm.com/detail/ame...orse%20bedding

    You can use any aspen but just make sure it is shredded aspen and not shaved or chipped. Most small animal bedding is shaved or chipped. You can tell as it is big shavings lol.

    Re: Gene finally has a thread!

    Thanks guys! Sucks that they won't ship and that store isn't in Illinois. I've searched all if my local areas and nothing. Amazon seems over priced too. Any thoughts of online resources?

    Gene was outside for almost 2 hours with us last night again. He is so calm and relaxed. He almost got a Robin the other day. Bird had a set of balls to walk up towards Gene.

    Had a neighbor that was walking if he was fake. Seems odd if he was as if be a 34 year old male playing with a rubber snake.

    I love how you take Gene outside and let him craw around. I think Rainbow would enjoy this as well. I started letting her out in the living room. Is mad fun.
