Hey all,
does anyone know a good place to buy climbing wood for reptile enclosures? I'd like some big pieces for a darwin carpet python in a 90x60x40 enclosure

You can always get some fallen branches and sticks from the wild so long as they aren't being used and it isn't a national park, state forest etc, otherwise I'm not really sure, there are pieces for sale on gumtree here and there but I don't know anyone selling it as a company. Id recommend checking out facebook marketplace and gumtree :)

Reptile stores sell some nice pieces but they can be a bit pricey (if your in melb i know amazing amazon has heaps). However I would probably just get wood from fallen branches in parks, soak them in boiling water to get rid of any unwanted insects!

Boil water in your jug, or use a big saucepan then carefully pour it over the wood, do it in sections so you make sure you're doing whole thing, leave out in sun to dry, job done.
