Thank you for your question hrenee. You can use any reptile litter scoop. When scooping, please keep in mind that if you notice any mold building up, all the bedding should be changed out.

Thank you for your question tweetiebug. It will depend on how deep you like the substrate in your terrarium, but typically a 25QT bag will work for the initial fill then you top off from their as needed.

Question

Safe for leo gecko

I know that sand is bad for geckos. Is this safe for an almost adult leo gecko? If not what bedding do you recommend. Thanks! This is our first lizard and I just want what is best for our new family member.

Thank you for your question Jenny99. This is largely personal preference. Some people will say not to use it and others will say that it is the best thing to use. There really isn’t much different than using this or sand from an animal health standpoint. Just keep an eye on them and make sure that when they eat they are not ingesting a lot of the bedding. This is the same with any substrate. If your gecko looks to take in a lot of the bedding while they eat you should use a reptile carpet liner in place of any other substrate.

Yes this is a perfect substrate and I also know some people will recommend a equal by weight with play sand to keep it moist. I mostly just use the substrate plain and try to spray it with water when its looking dry and mix it up. Don't let it get too dry because then it will get dusty and they can get respiratory problems.

As a juvenile I would suggest reptile carpeting until your beardie is a little older. Once your bearde is older and no longer at risk of taking in a bunch of substrate along with its food the walnut shells are a fantastic substrate for beardies. You just need to be extra cautious with juvenile bearded dragons.

For a snake, a better substrate would be aspen wood shavings. SKU: 1525565 or 1558943
