Exo-Terra Natural Desert Sand RED 4.5KG

Exo Terra’s TerrariumSand is natural desert sand with no added dyes or chemicals. The sand has been sifted to remove impurities and to obtain a homogenous sand grain size.

Substrates in natural terrariums have many functions and are not only there for decoration purposes.

They play a very important role in the determination of the terrarium’s micro climate. Digging and burrowing reptiles have different needs than tree dwelling species, whereas desert animals prefer yet another type of substrate. Heat conductivity is important when a substrate heater is used.

Please note ALL loose substrates can cause Impacted gut if ingested in large quantities and the best way to help prevent this is to ensure you provide sufficient calcium in the diet as reptiles will eat substrate in the wild to make up for mineral deficiencies.
