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.
