    Honestly, some substrate shouldn't be an issue. They don't gain nutritional benefit from it, but they can digest and pass it if its fine, just like the roughage in their prey's stomachs. Other than rare instances, as long as they're well hydrated, there's no real problems. Coco coir style stuff isn't really a danger.

    That said, orchid bark based potting mediums may meet your needs; the coconut husk chip kind.

    I'll take a look into that, thank you!

    Rationally I know it's not going to be harmful for him, but he definitely 'yawns' more frequently when I can see eco earth at the edge of his lips. I imagine it's not super pleasant always having dirt in your mouth. (No signs of RI, so I'm relatively certain the yawn is substrate related)

    I'll go check out the local gardening place the next chance I get

    Re: Talion Progression Thread

    So we got back from our Christmas break yesterday. We were only gone ten days, but it sure was good to see the snakes again!

    They missed a feeding while we were gone, so Talion was very eager for food.

    I appreciate the enthusiasm, but that can't be comfortable!

    Thanks! It's a super busy birthday with exams and kennel duty for school (up at 5am taking care of dogs and cats lol) but it's been a good day!

    Definitely vanilla cake though!

    Re: Talion Progression Thread

    Update on the little Talion.

    It seems like he's growing so fast! Little man weighs 245g now, as opposed to the 68g he came to us at Oct 31st. He's the hungriest boople I've ever met - not that I'm complaining!

    Anyway here are a couple quick pictures of him. He's so calm now, super curious and not at all jumpy. I can boop the little dot that's right on the tip of his snoot and he doesn't even pull back xD

    Re: Talion Progression Thread

    Wow it's been a long time since I updated!

    Talion is on his way to being not so little he's still such a gem, great personality. I love to take him out and just stare at him! He's still never refused a meal, and constantly acts like he's starving.

    His favourite place is still wrapped around my watch <3 I love this noodle!!
