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.
