"Naturalistic" alternatives to a sand substrate!

The clay is mixed with water and made into a “mud paste” kind of texture. You then quickly mold it to make caves or holes, and as it dries it hardens. Little to no loose parts! Digging reptiles like monitors can tunnel through it as well.

I’ve never used it, but as far as I can tell it’s safe!

The sand mat is interesting. Mostly made to fit exo terra vivs (unfortunately) it is just like their reptile carpet BUT it has sand and small bits of rock glued to it. It’s one solid piece, no loose sand! I’ve felt it and it’s not sharp at all. Personally I think it’s amazing and if I ever had a beardie or leo I’d get this.
