Yellow Sand with Clay for Terrarium

It is worth remembering that although a given species of reptile occurs in a specific region, the substrate itself may differ in places. The sand in the terrarium looks very aesthetic, encourages lizards to natural behavior such as digging, they can also lay eggs in it. But when is it worth choosing sand with an admixture of clay? In fact, in the case of most desert reptiles, it depends mainly on the breeder's preferences and what visual effect he wants in the terrarium. However, if you use sand-only substrate and have noticed that your reptile eats the substrate in excess while eating a meal, then it is worth switching to sand with clay, which will be safer for it.

Excess sand in the body in extreme cases can lead to clogging of the digestive system, so in the case of snacking, I recommend changing the substrate to another, for example sand with clay or edible sand for agama made from pure Calcium. Sand with Clay is characterized by a compact consistency, which limits the sticking of grains of sand to the food and the mouth of the reptile. A mixture of yellow sand and clay in a ratio of approx. 1:1 can be used to build walls in the terrarium, tunnels, caves, etc. If you are looking for a ready-made substrate with clay, check here substrate for the Bearded Agama and a substrate for the Leopard Gecko.
