No, I read a lot before getting her and had all set for her (more or less, I actually planned to hold off a bit before getting her, but I was made an offer I couldn't resist... and got her for a LOT cheaper than I thought... so anyway... I did my research and decided to go for paper towels. I soon discovered that crix hid under them, and I didn't liked it, so I got some really cool tiles and that's what she has. Right now she's on paper towels again, cause I don't have her on her regular tank, which is the one that has the tiles that fit right. 8) Either way, she won't ever be in any type of sand. Better safe than sorry.
Hmmm.. I think snakes do have teeth. Tiny teeth if they are constrictors and those 2 fangs, plus tiny teeth if they are venemous...
I also think that leo's have teeth, but as far as I know their bite doesn't hurt much... I haven't been bitten by Cleo, she once's opened her menacing mouth to my finger when I had her at first, but she has always been pretty much tame. I don't really know how old she is. I have had her for... about 5 month I think... not sure... and I'm pretty sure she wasn't a hatchling when I got her... already had that nice fat tail, and it was sold to me as an adult, but a friend of mine thinks she isn't cause she still has some lines on her. She's supposed to be completely spotted when she reaches adulthood. 8)
