    Just trying to help my nephew out, he's looking for pine shavings, rat food and jumbo rats or rabbits on a regular basis. He's primarily into higher end ball morphs and some retics :D Thnx.

    I've bred leopard geckos but that's it I'll probably try with my jungle carpet python when it's bigger. Have him look into Pratt's pets for supplies and feeders

    There's a guy in Phoenix (near 24st) that I used to buy bedding, rats, and rat food from. Good prices. I'll see if I can dig up his info.

    I breed dinosaurs...Miniature ones. I stole the idea from the movie Jurassic park. I train the Mini T-Rex's to slay cats and squirrels.

    I breed Rhacodactylus geckos. Mainly crested geckos and chahoua geckos. But I usually end up with a few other rando species too. A few pics....

    I can set you up with cypress mulch. Its better than pine shavings. It keeps odors down between regular cleanings and just looks more natural than pine which has its issues.

    I would stay away from Pratt's and the place on 24th Ave and Bell.

    In Mesa and Tempe there are three good places to go or there is a place east of Cave Creek on Bell.

    I think the OP means pine shavings for breeding rats. :confused: It causes respiratory problems in herps anyway.

    Thats why I am pushing the Cypress. Cedar is even worse than pine!
