Great for Diggers

While it is a little messy to work with I haven't found a better substrate. Easy clean up, no more odor, just add more water when ready to recreate. Sand is terrible for your beardie and felt or other cloth bottoms hold in too much odor. The clay is great for those beardie's who love to dig too. Ours digs tunnels and it keeps their nails trimmed. Our vet was shocked to see how well his nails were trimmed. When we told her about the clay substrate she had never heard of it. She asked if she could take x-rays to see if it was in his system, and it wasn't! She was awed and our beardie is happy and we love it.

We bought this product to create a unique terrarium for our leopard gecko. Its not as easy i thought! The amount of water recommended on the package wasnt correct, we had to add whole lot more to actually work with it. We used balloons to create caves, that worked out good. The package said to let it dry for 24hrs., after 2 weeks it still wasnt dry. I must say it looks great but i wouldnt buy it again. For the next terrarium we will use rocks and stones.
Pros: looks great
Cons: price, messy

the sand has a strong smell of sand and it is complicated to work with. the quality was nice but my gecko hated it. I reccomend that you buy a lot because it takes a lot of the stuff to make tunnels.
