Finacard Cardboard Animal Bedding, Paper Horse Bedding, Nesting Material : Finacard

There is a thread on here about it, I am trying a sample it's shredded cardboard surprisingly soft

And Aubiose AUBIOSE HEMP BEDDING 20KG | Horse Bedding | GJW Titmuss

Which is Hemp. I have a bale of this but I am allergic to it. I has a very strong plant smell.

Carefresh very expensive & people say it's more dusty than shavings & Megazorb but I have not tried it

We use and like hemp. We have a bag of the natural carefresh stuff but must admit I'm not impressed with it. Plus yeah, it costs a lot.
(Our other used substrate is woodshavings but you've already said you don't like those.)

I don't know as I am so allergic to it that I could not even use it. Cracking headache & my Asthma didn't like it either!

Sorry

Yes. Both our hybrids and our roborovskis tunnel in it and the tunnels stay perfectly fine. Our robo Muffin even develops his own little maze of tunnels in his ZZ2 and can use them to move around his cage underground. They hold perfectly and last for months if we let them
