    I hear you. He has produced a lot of firsts over the years but there is only so much of the guy I can take.

    Wonder if it's any good, when Chief Michelle's made dog food I thought it be great but it was practically made of packing peanuts

    Re: Herptopia?

    He's definitely the "face" on youtube right now....I admit I watch his vlog on occasion when I'm at work. Midnight shift can be trying at times, that's why 99% of the time I'm posting here in the middle of my shift during down time.

    I switched to Herptopia when I went to PVC enclosures from cypress mulch in the tanks. No complaints thus far - it holds humidity well - ins't dusty - if I spill when filling the water dishes it absorbs and doesn't puddle up - and there is no smell when the snakes poop or pee - I literally have to look for it now.

    Yeah - his face is everywhere but that's what our world is built on - money and "star" recognition.

    Zina did a comparison that helped me make the decision to try it.... https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...erptopia/page3

    Re: Herptopia?

    I opened the box yesterday expecting Herptopia I ordered from their website and wham, there's that face again what the? BHB'd... clearly he's talented and a smart businessmen, I just found the new branding a little obnoxious... huge covers the entire bag.

    Will my next Big Cheese delivery be Brian Barczyk's rat pups? We'll see lol

    Yeah, he did a whole vlog about his involvement with the company.

    Smart move for both sides, diversifies his brand and gets H'topia into the mainstream. I find him a bit too commercial for my tastes, but you have to admire the effort he's putting into it. I do watch his vlogs from time to time, sometimes there is some interesting snake stuff, but often its just mundane personal stuff. In either case, i do think its unfortunate that there seems to be a small but vocal population who are convinced he's the antichrist, from what i can tell its mostly angry teen and drama queens.

    I bought it based on the review here and then his tour of the plant. I was surprised to see his face on the bag so soon cause the video was only a month old showing the switch.
    I find it funny that people ate upset with his branding. I think that he is a great ambassador for the reptile community. He is what Colion Noir is to the gun community. Hopefully He will get this out in bulk and to distributors.
    I tried to make that stuff drop a granule of dust... Nothing. I don't have to mist to keep humidity. And a water bowl tipped a little water and it never touched the tub. It soaked up instantly and didn't spread.
    Awesome stuff

    Just checked out the site. Saw a review from someone who found 2 silverfish in his cages with the substrate. Anyone see a problem like this? That would unman me...and I'm a woman!
