Hognose have a giant advantage, they make their own hides, with their nose. Give them sandy substrate and it only needs to be a few inches deep and they do the rest. One side a big moist, leave another a bit dry, hot spot and cooler areas, and the hogs do what hogs do and for neonates, in total security, as they would in nature.
And yes, like you mentioned, we as keepers are not restricted by commercial products, the outside world is full of better products that actually fit the animal we are working with. Best wishes, pics later
