    Bed-A-Beast

    Would something like coco fiber be a safe product for a boa constrictor? I have tons of it not being used right now, but didn't want to use it untill y'all said it would be OK.

    Coco Fiber will be just fine to use as substrate for your Boa. You can take a look at the caresheet for a list of approved substrates. Remember just no Cypress!

    Cypress is fine. As long as it isn't dyed.
    Its cedar you have to stay away from.

    Bed a beast works great - as it can be hosed down, and will help buffer humidity levels. I probably don't need to remind you that you should feed outside of the cage to avoid impaction. I use Cocofiber with many of my herps, and love it.
