    Default Preparing Wood for a vivarium


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi ya'll! I am beginning my own naturalistic viv for my crested gecko, and today I bought a large piece of cork wood for the viv that seems perfect. However, it came out of a venomous snakes enclosure. I was wondering how if i could cleanse it and remove any bacteria or bad things off of it, by boiling or baking it, and how i would go about that. As far as i know, theres nothing on it and it seems pretty clean.

    IME, baking at a high enough temp to kill things will just make it brittle. you could boil it, and that would help but isn't a guarantee.

    are you aware of whether the other reptile had any health issues or parasites?
