Support Our Locally Owned Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Sand & Gravel for Reptiles
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.

Had exactly what I was looking for and at a competitive price. Thx much.
Me and my girlfriends favorite place to buy our bearded dragon's food. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable. This place is probably the only reason I've held a snake in my life, which wasn't nearly as scary as I expected! If you're thinking about coming here just do it, they've got the big chains beat by a mile.
Great friendly local pet /feed store.
Staff is always super friendly, environment is always clean. Love this place.
Love Buckles!! So many critters, with quality care items, for both your domestic and more exotic choices! This is where we always get our feeder mice for my partner's ball pythons.
