    This is a great bedding for small mammals and snakes, but I wouldn't use it on larger mammals due to its small size--it wouldn't give adult rats enough support for instance. Aspen bedding produces much less odor (ammonia) than pine. As a result, I only have to clean the cages 1/2 as often resulting in both less work and less garbage produced. I also find it very attractive in snake cages. I have used other sani-chips (same product with a different brand name) and found this brand has a much nicer quality. The brand I used to use would have one bag significantly darker in color, the next bag brighter, etc. When using the "darker" bags, cages would kind of look dingy and dirty even though they were just cleaned. Not a problem with this brand. All the bags I have used are very light/bright in color. Highly recommended for mice, hamsters, and snake bedding.

    My pet rats love the chips, and on PetFoodDirect the price is ASTOUNDING!

    But, even with deep plastic pans on the bottom levels of their cages, they will kick it all over the place outside the cage. I have to vacuum every single day. Just sweeping it into a pan is a chore because a light breeze will scatter it to all ends of the earth.

    Also, if your pet pulls any kind of soft blanket, towel, or fabric toy into the bedding, good luck getting the chips off... I have to throw it all into a hamper, take it outside, and beat the heck out of it. Not the end of the world, but just transporting a chip-encrusted fleece outside leaves an annoying trail of chips through the house. :)

    The bedding itself though is really amazing, but I have very inquisitive and active rats; for indoor household use, I advise against these tiny chips, and instead recommend the normal aspen shavings as bedding. Fortunately though, PetFoodDirect also has the regular aspen bedding at an unbeatable price. :)

      We used this bedding for a guinea pig. I wanted to try the chips versus the shredded Aspen bedding to see if it was less messy (kicked out of cage). It turns out it is kick out at least as much as the shredded but it also sticks to the long hair of our guinea pig. It may work with smaller animals with shorter hair...our guinea pig is huge so he sinks into the bedding when walking.

        I use sani chips for 4 snake enclosures. Makes my snake cages very easy to spot clean because of the clumping of the sani chips when soiled. They smell great and control odors much better than regular aspen bedding. Highly recommend this product!

          Comments about Native Earth Aspen Sani Chips 2.2 Cubic Foot Bedding:

          This was shipped to me when i'd originally ordered the shredded aspen. The correct product was quickly sent once i called in & reported the error though so im satisfied the issue was resolved. In the meantime i had to use this & was not at all happy with it. The consistance was more like light wispy flakes instead of chips. Had to put a heavier layer of shredded aspen over the top just to keep it from blowing away or being kicked out of my animals cages.

            I love this bedding. It keeps my home smelling fresh and it is so easy to sift in between full cleanings, I just use a kitty litter scoop to tidy up the cage. I have 2 rats and I wouldn't want to use anything else for them. I'm glad my breeder recommended this.
