The only appropriate wood chip bedding for reptiles
posted 5 years ago
Pine and cedar chips should not be used with reptiles as they give off volatile oils that can be harmful to reptiles. Aspen doesn't have this problem. A potential risk, however, of using aspen chips is that they can cause impact if the reptile consumes one. Feeding in a separate container that doesn't have the chips is preferred, even though the risk is fairly low.
Pros: fairly inexpensive, no harmful volatile oils
Cons: some risk of impaction

Little dust but smells bad
posted 6 years ago
I ordinarily don't use apsen, but I was given a bag by someone to try out. It's a lot less dusty than dried pine and the flakes are larger. It was more expensive than pine and not available at all the pet stores I shop at. My guinea pigs didn't seem to notice any difference with it but the smell bothered me. Pine has almost no scent but this was a strong smell I don't like. I would use it again but am not sure if I will buy it since it's more expensive.
Pros: Less dust than pine
Cons: Strong smell
