    OK so what do you want me to do , sit you down at the table with a glass of milk and cookies? Hold your hand?

    YOU came here and asked for advice, you were given the advice, but it was not what you wanted to hear...too bad!

    Not having enough coverage in his tank will stress him out, I think you need to do a bit more research. These guys do not sit around in open fields in the wild, why would they feel safe doing so in captivity. They need cover!

    As for your other comments, I work in rescue, rehabilitation and education, I have seen far more than you can imagine, have seen animals with "dead tails" die within hours because their irresponsible owners didn't feel that they needed to see a vet, have spent my time, energy and money to get animals healthy because Irresponsible owners thought they knew what they were doing and didn't listen to the advice given them.

    Newspaper is perfectly fine for use in reptiles, the ink is soy based and does not put off "fumes" to make you feel better I currently have paper towel in all of my reptile cages!

    I have a very hard time believing that his tail healed up, but miracles do happen... he will still have the toxins in his blood, but you don't want to hear that.

    I hope your snake gets better. :)

    On a separate note: PLEASE write your posts a little more carefully and use punctuation! It is VERY difficult to understand what you are trying to say!!! There is also a rule in the Terms of Use of this website that you should not use short forms such as ur for "you are".

    "Internet Slang
    We DO NOT allow the use of internet slang or shorthand. We have members from all over the world that post on the HC Network. Many of them translate our threads to read in their native language. Short cuts and internet slang are not easily translated, and get lost in translation. As such, we do not allow the use of such shortcuts on the site. This also aids our users who are translating the site into their native language.

    Please attempt to use proper grammar on the site. This includes punctuation. Run-on sentences are extremely difficult to read. Periods, commas, and capitalizing the first letter of the first word in a sentence makes a massive difference. You will also attract more responses as your post will be clear and legible. This also aids our users who are translating the site into their native language.

    The site has a built in spell-checker. It won't catch every word you may attempt to spell, but it will aid in correcting misspelled words you may have overlooked. We are not sticklers on spelling, but since the feature is built into the site, it would be nice if you could take the 2 seconds it requires to use it. This also aids our users who are translating the site into their native language."

    It would be much easier to believe you if your story didn't change.
    When you started talking about it was this yesterday afternoon at 3:27, it apparently was still there. Then at 9:44 You tell us that the tip fell off and the tail is healed.
    I did, many years ago. And have used it for everything.

    Show me the link to where it says that newspaper is hazardous for snake cages.

    Why should I look it up . You are the one that said you knew where it was.
    But I didn't really think that you could provide it.
    The problem is that Black and white newspaper has been proven safe not only for reptile cages but for bedding for domestic food animal production. Many years ago your claim may have had some value but the inks used now are the same pigments used in tatoo ink and makeup and hair coloring.
