Finding the best bedding for your pet snake, turtle or lizard can be tough. There are many different items to choose from.
The right option for your cold-blooded buddy depends on the species and sub-species. You want to match your environment's bedding to the reptiles native environment as closely as possible.
For example, snakes like substrate made of 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 consistency.
Hermit crabs like a mixture of sand, silt, and coconut fiber, a combination that imitates what they would find on a tropical coastline. Most sand items have a probiotic included that assists to break down natural waste. They maintains your pet's habitat clean and fresh-smelling. You can get sand items in a variety of tones, including black, red and yellow, to add a little style to your habitat.
If you have a pet turtle, you'll want to get a substrate which contains riverbed sand, to mimic the turtle's natural environment.
Some reptile owners prefer to put 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 easy to install and also help in decreasing reptile odors. They can be removed, washed to clean, and reinserted into your reptile's environment.

Support locally owned business. Easily the best pet store I've frequented. Several times I've needed something for my pet that they don't carry and they've not only ordered it for me but it is now part of their stock.
I have mixed feelings about this place just because I visit so often. First off is their pet food is amazingly priced. Way better than the name brand stores. They have a wife variety of animals and have some rescues sometimes. So if you are looking for a pet rat I would check and see if they have any rescues you can take home. They have a rewards system for every 5 bags of food your 6th one is free. They have stuff for cats dogs, amphibians, reptiles, and arachnids. But also for birds, rodents, and a few other interesting animals. The only problem that I have ever really had is 1 the smell of the room where they keep all the feeder rats and the rescues. But I know they clean it regularly. And one time I got a rat from there and they said it was a boy. Without checking I got all the way home and found out it was a girl and had to come back and exchange it.
Excellent place for reptiles, feeders & other odds and ends for your pets that your local pet stores don't carry!
