I got 50 mini(15-20lbs) bales of straw for free last month, so I use it to bed the mice. Could I use it for snakes? It's very dry, dust free(I'm allergic to dust and mold and have no reaction at all to it), it's in plastic bags too so no chance of getting wet(no mold) and of course I have 1/2 a shed full! I want to use a type of bedding that they can borrow in, like aspen but need to cut the costs down. Aspen is crazy over priced up here, a tiny bag that can do 3-4 10 gals is $10. I was thinking of shredded paper too, since that would be free. My kids love to shred the flyers lol!
