    Coco husk bedding question?

    Good afternoon guys and gals. I have a quick question on my bedding. I Live in upstate NY, and as you can imagine with heat in the winter I have trouble with keeping humidity. I have finally settled on coco husk last winter as it held the humidity great.
    My question now is feeding on it. When he was a baby it was easy to put a plate or Tupperware top in there to feed him, now that he is growing itís harder to do this. The FT mouse is usually dry and I watch him, but is this coco husk safe to feed him on if he accidentally swallows some? His last feeding he grabbed the mouse and I was able to pick him up while he grabbed the mouse and place him on top of the Tupperware top, but as he gets bigger Iím not sure if itís smart to pick him up while heís eating. Any suggestions are great.
    How do you guys do it?

    I've never had a problem with it, but always feed dry rather than wet anyway

    Don't worry about it. They can handle coco husk no problem.
    Think of it like this... nobody puts a plate down for snakes in the wild and they've survived thousands of years.

    Coco husk is fine enough that there aren't any pieces large enough to harm your snake. I mean, you obviously don't want a lot ingested, but a little will just be pooped out.

    I feed wet prey and have never had a problem either.
