Product Details

Shredded Aspen bedding is made from 100% Great Lakes Aspen wood. It makes an excellent contact bedding for rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, and guinea pigs. Shredded Aspen is not a by-product of some other manufacturing process. It is manufactured from pure aspen wood, specifically for use as a contact bedding, from aged virgin timber.
Shredded Aspen is a natural hardwood material, so it is a preferred alternative to softwood bedding materials such as pine. Also, unlike traditional hardwood chips, the random particle sizes of shredded aspen material give animals the ability to construct nests and burrows. This makes Shredded Aspen a good choice for use with breeding animals.

During production of Shredded Aspen, the product is exposed to very high temperatures. These conditions reduce the moisture content of the finished product to approximately 8%, and dramatically reduce harmful bacteria and other microorganisms.

Shredded Aspen is packaged in a compressed 4.38 cubic foot autoclavable paper bags, which expand to approximately 13 cubic feet when opened.

I currently keep 9 hamsters living in various sized tanks from Ikea Detolf hacks (x2) to 40 gallon breeder tanks (x2) to 110 quart bin cages. One bag of this substrate will last me at least two months with 6"+ substrate for burrowing and frequent spot clean. It is very soft, great for tunnels if you mix some hay in it, and I find it's not as dusty as Carefresh or other brands of aspen shavings. This is by far best value substrate I've found anywhere and I highly recommend it, as long as you're not allergic to aspen. :)

This Huge bag is a great deal, but I think I will not use it. the shedding is too small and dusty, when I started using this one of my pigs got sick, i moved it to old bedding and he got better (maybe coincidence?) but bedding does not keep cage clean and my two boys get dirty and stinky in this. Will not buy again.

    Comments about Native Earth Shredded Aspen 4.38 Cubic Foot Compressed Bedding:

    I have a lot of rats and need to change cages very often. This product is terrific -- the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it dirties somewhat quickly since it is so fine (i.e. aspen shavings seem to last a little longer), but it is a terrific product & I WILL buy more.
