Support Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Sand & Gravel for Reptiles
Getting the best bedding for your pet snake, turtle or lizard can be challenging. There are various products to choose from.
The ideal choice for your cold-blooded buddy depends on the species and sub-species. You want to match your habitat's bedding to the reptiles natural surroundings as closely as possible.
For instance, snakes like substrate made from sand, gravel and stone, wood shavings, and paper products.
Lizards like to sleep on sand and gravel.
Desert-dwellers, such as bearded dragons and skinks, like walnut wheels that are ground into a sand-like uniformity.
Hermit crabs like a mixture of sand, silt, and coconut fiber, a mix that imitates what they would find on a tropical beach. Most sand products have a probiotic included that helps to break down organic waste. They maintains your pet's environment clean and fresh-smelling. You can get sand products in a selection of colors, including black, red and yellow, to add a little style to your environment.
If you have a pet turtle, you'll want to get a substrate that contains riverbed sand, to mimic the turtle's natural surroundings.
Some reptile owners prefer to place a carpet liner in their pet's habitat. This can be used with most reptiles and can be cut to fit your tank. A carpet liner offers a soft surface for your reptile's underbelly. You can include other bedding items, such as bark, wood shavings, or moss over the carpet. Pet carpets are very easy to install and also assist in reducing reptile odors. They can be removed, rinsed to clean, and reinserted right into your reptile's habitat.
At Pet Playhouse, our well-informed team will be happy to answer each of your questions, including what type of bedding is best for your reptile. We can also check to see if a specific item is in stock or special order an item for you. We invite you to visit our Plantsville, CT store soon.

We have been treating our Great Dane for 2 yrs with liver disease, he was on expensive medication that I had to force down him . Unfortunately that medication is constantly back ordered , a bottle last 15 days and is 75$ ( yes because I have a giant dog). I still wasn’t getting any results from it. I started him on a supplement chew 6 months ago with only increments of 10 coming down in values if at all . I reached out to debbie, and we discussed some options… well we have been on “liver defense” for almost 5 weeks. I repeated necessary blood work and my boys values have dropped buy 140 points in just that little time . my boy is doing great and is only on vetri-science liver chews and liver defense , for his liver . The only results I’m seeing is after adding the defense! We are super thankful for your help debbie !! And we love you !!
Customer service here is incredible!! The owner brought to my attention that there was a recall on the food I was feeding my dog and turns out I had the recalled lot at home. My dog has food allergies. She helped me to find a replacement food and offered free samples and a refund for the bag of food that didn't work out. The owner called me the next day to see how my dog did with the new food. Really cares about animals. Best Customer service I have had in years. Great example of the importance of shopping local. Thank you Pet Playhouse!
I am so happy I found this store. As a first time pet owner of a cat. I would like to give a great big thank you to the owner/operator of this store.
She was absolutely amazing. MY pet was not well. It was a combination of issues,nerves and stress also because he is 6 month kitty in a new home ,traveled from overseas. He had tummy issues. I went into the store looking for a change of diet and was recommended a very clean and natural,healthy brand that worked well with him.
A great big thank you to her ,you can tell there is only a certain set of ppl that really care about animals.
I can you tell she is one of them.
