Reptile Bedding: Snakes, Tortoises, Geckos and More

Reptiles need to have substrate designed specifically for their species in their habitat to support their humidity needs, and closely replicate its natural environment. Many species will have more than one option available, and it will come down to your personal preference for what is most visually appealing to you for your home.

FAQs About Reptile Bedding and Substrate

There are several types of bedding that can be used for your pet reptile—depending on their species. Select a substrate based on your pet’s natural environment and humidity requirements. As a good rule of thumb, use bark or coconut substrate for species that require humidity and sand, carpet or aspen for desert species.

Conduct daily spot cleaning where waste is visible. Complete substrate changes will vary depending on your species, how many reptiles are housed in the same enclosure and the size of your habitat. At a minimum, complete substrate changes are recommended twice per month.
