Finding the right bedding for your pet snake, turtle or lizard can be difficult. There are several items to pick from.
The best choice for your cold-blooded companion depends on the species and sub-species. You want to match your environment's bedding to the reptiles natural surroundings as closely as possible.
For example, snakes favor substrate made from sand, gravel and stone, wood shavings, and paper products.
Lizards prefer 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 combination of sand, silt, and coconut fiber, a combination that mimics what they would find on a tropical coastline. Most sand items have a probiotic included that helps to break down natural waste. They maintains your pet's habitat clean and fresh-smelling. You can get sand items in a selection of shades, 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 imitate the turtle's native environment.
Some reptile owners prefer to place a carpet liner in their pet's environment. 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 simple to set up and also help in lowering reptile smells. They can be removed, rinsed to clean, and reinserted right into your reptile's environment.
