Our box hide.

Our toilet. Time to change the paper towels!

Us underneath toilet being warm and content in our clean bedding. We are directly over UTH. We are fed fuzzies in the cup every 7 or 8 days. We use the toilet 90% of the time instead of pooping in the aspen. Simply switch out the soiled toilet for a fresh one a couple days after feeding.

My other pits do this toilet thing as well. My pyros just go to the far end of the cage and poop. I think this is an attempt to not have their feces near their nest. In the wild they would not want to lead predators to their nest with a lot of feces in the area. Sort of like cats burying their feces. If the snakes could leave the cage they would poop anywhere while cruising about and not be confined to any one spot. So this pooping in the container or at the far end of the cage is an adaptation to captivity, I think.
