    Do you think it was due to a splinter in mouth that caused a infection?Most have zero problems with aspen, but I tried it and seen right away theres to much risk of it causing problems.Maybe in the wild there not on flat paper but there also not locked in a box in dust and splinters .We cant reproduce the wild so why not just make them as safe as we can in there captive homes.Hides can still be offered.

    That's why I usually hand sift through my aspen before I put it in the cages. I also feed my gals on plates so they don't eat aspen and of course watch them as they eat to make sure. Good to hear your guy is doing better. I know what its like to have a sick pet, my beardie somehow got RI so between the stress of her going to vet and me having to give her Baytril daily along with probiotics and everything, it was a stressful month or so for both of us.

    If you have enough snakes over a long enough time span your going to have to deal with this kind of stuff. As far as substrate goes, and keeping my "enough snakes over a long enough time span" in mind, anything could happen. I had a boa try and eat a few pages of the newspaper, I caught her just before she got it down and it pulled out easily. I can't imagine that would have went well otherwise. I have had a ball python fine one day dead the next piece of aspen stuck in her glottis.. You can't watch them 24/7.

    Yeah I'm thinking it was a splinter not 100%.I don't think she's ever been on a loose substrate, so when she was she tried burrowing.Not realizing it wasn't limitless she'd hit the bottom keep trying to burrow which would slightly open her mouth and she would push forward ended up with a mouth full of bedding i pulled out what i thought was all of it but I was indeed wrong.I noticed the substrate doesn't affect my bigger girls they compact it into a brick from their weight.I really wonder how they survive in the wild sometimes haha.It's funny you said that Ed I had a male Het leopard try to eat his shed skin after his rat.Luckily I saw it and managed to get it out haha

    Thanks man, I didn't and don't see any other choice in situations like this but to go to the vet.I gotta say it's because of the forums, I've seen hundreds of should I take my snake to the vet post.Usually the snake needs to see a vet and people say something about money or what not as an excuse so why even make the post haha!?!That's not right at all, if you chose to buy this animal you chose to buy whatever it needs to keep it healthy.So I'm not gonna sit around or ask if I should go to a vet when I know something is wrong, and I don't know how to fix it.

    ****!!!!!I just can't win with this snake, I come home from work today, check in on her she rubbed her face raw again and it was healing so well!Thankfully no signs of mouth rot reappearing still.So next course of action get a bigger cage.I'm gonna call up boamaster see if I can get them to rush me 6'x3'x20" before this girl kills herself.As well as make another vet trip.

    Damn, sry that sucks. I hope the big 6 ft cage does the trick for her, she's a good looking suri with a nice tail. Keep us updated.

    What you got her in now a 4fter?Im sure shes big, cause mike don't raise tiny boas.LOL......Does your cage have a space or sharp lip that shes rooting on?You raised temps right,are you sure shes has a 80F cool end atlease to escape the the heat?Bigger cages help I think,giving them more space to move and not get closterfobic from siting in a small box for life.goodluck.Feeding her would stop her for a few days!LOL
