Ball pythons are great for first-time pet owners as they’re generally very docile and, because they don’t have fangs, pose no serious risk of injury. But when first-time snake owners find out ball python substrate is now on their shopping list, they’re often overwhelmed by the number of choices. While there are many options out there, ReptiChip’s coconut substrate stands above the rest, and makes the perfect ball python bedding for your new pet.

Why ReptiChip Is The Ideal Ball Python Substrate

Without the proper ball python substrate to create the ideal habitat, your animal will struggle to be happy or healthy. After all, your snake didn’t evolve to spend its life on the glass of your terrarium, right? 

Here at Reptichip, we’re passionate about giving our pets a safe and comfortable home. When we couldn’t find the ideal ball python substrate, we got to work on developing our own. 

That’s when we stumbled upon coconut substrate as a potential solution, and after many tweaks, ReptiChip was born. Here’s why ReptiChip’s innovative solution is the best ball python bedding out there;

  • ReptiChip holds humidity, creating an environment your snake will love
  • It’s easy to clean
  • Is made using only the highest quality coconuts
  • Coconut has a low potassium and sodium content, making it safer for your reptiles
  • ReptiChip is made using 100% organic coconuts

Why ReptiChip?

ReptiChip is an innovative ball python substrate that utilizes one of the safest, most convenient and most renewable products out there: coconut.

I never do reviews for anything but I have been so impressed with ReptiChip since I started using it a year ago . It comes compact and expands a crazy ton, holds humidity great and doesn't mold at all from my experience, really worth what you get for $30 maybe they give too much but hey I'll ...

This stuff is fantastic for maintaining humidity for my ball python. I foil taped the screen, have a large water bowl in the enclosure, and refill it every couple days. That’s all I have to do to maintain 65% humidity. Hydrating it was pretty straightforward, I used a big Rubbermaid bin, and ...

After much research on substrate for my ball python I decided on ReptiChip. So far, so good. It's holding the humidity at the proper level. I haven't noticed any color transferring onto my snake either which is great. The only downside to the product is when only having 1 snake it's hard ...

Ordered this to try in my BT skink's enclosure. It was easy to work with; I just sprayed it with a hose and waited for a while, gradually chipping pieces off with a shovel. It did take longer than 15 minutes to rehydrate; it was closer to 45 mins, but still not a ton of effort. It filled ...

I'm really digging this stuff. As a small time hobbiest/breeder, every penny counts. You want the best for your animals, without costing you an arm and a leg. We have tried many coco-based products over the years. ReptiChip was the first one we came across that wasn't a fine powder or didn't ...

I absolutely love this substrate. I use it in a 18x18x24" glass cage for my brazilian rainbow boa, and it's dense enough that it provides a solid floor, but it's loose enough that he can really dig in it, which he loves and does every day. When I first got it I thought it would be too scratchy ...

I've had terrible luck with trying different beddings for my snakes, and so many ordered both online and bought at stores in person have either been awful quality or housing mites. I read the reviews for this and decided to give it a try and extremely impressed! I have absolutely NO complaints, ...

I've tried different types of substrate and this is the best stuff I've come across. Holds humidity well. The size of this block covers A LOT! I filled two terrariums and still had plenty leftover. Super easy to get the block ready. There's a YouTube video on their website, but basically you ...
