Do you have any Burmese star for sale?
I have each of my Russians in their own 3x6' wooden enclosures for the winter, inside my sunporch. Their substrate is coco fiber and organic soil. Every day I pick out their messes, scooping the wet ones when necessary. How often do I need to completely empty the enclosures and refill? Also, can I use a mild bleach water solution after it is empty to sanitize? Or is their a better cleaner?

Greetings!
I just realized that you and I are pretty close to one another. I plan on visiting Lancaster one day.
Have you ever been to the green dragon fleamarket? I think I am saying it correctly. I heard it's amazing and they sell micro pigs there.
