Excellent egg-laying medium for many reptiles.
Recommended for bearded dragons and other desert agamid lizards, leopard geckos, soft-shell turtles, tarantulas and scorpions, uromastyx lizards, sand boas, sandfish lizards, collard lizards, plated lizards, desert iguanas, desert and semi-terrestrial skinks (schneiders, ocellated, or sand), leopard lizards, girdle-tailed, plated, or armadillo-type lizards, and burrowing frogs (spadefoot, true toads).
Clean out debris as needed with sifter, litter scoop, or spoon.
Replace sand if foul or musty smell persists, as least every 12 months for small species, six months for larger or "messier" species.
Helpful Hints: When using Zoo Med's Reptitherm U.T.H. in your terrarium, place one layer of Zoo Med's Repti Cage Carpet down first, then Repti Sand. This prevents burrowing reptiles from resting directly above heater, resulting in possible burns.
Provide a dish of vitamin/calcium powder (i.e. Zoo Med's Reptivite) to prevent overconsumption of sand in many gecko species.
Many desert reptiles and invertebrates (i.e. insects and spiders) benefit, and need access to, a humidified shelter for proper shedding, respiratory functions and to prevent water loss.
Be sure to use Zoo Med's Precision Analog Thermometer and Humidity gauge in all desert-type enclosures.
Adding a small layer of good aquarium carbon to the bottom of your terrarium before adding Repti Sand will help in keeping the terrarium odor free!
