Ok, I need some tips. I have two beautiful, perfect branches from outside that will go perfect in my RT Boa's cage. The only thing is, is the fact that they are huge! (they are the size of my 55 gallon) so I cannot bake them or boil them. I soaked them in the bathtub for a few hours with a teeny bit of bleach, so little that you couldn't even smell it in the water. I took them out and laid them out in the sun. I'm wondering if this is enough? I smelled the branches and they smell icky, but i'm thinking that that will go away when they are dry. Do I need to peel the bark off and sand them down or will they be fine? They are from my yard so there is no insecticide but there may be bugs which is why I soaked it in the bathtub.
