Finding the right bedding for your animal snake, turtle or lizard can be difficult. There are so many different products from which to select. Reptile bedding is made using a variety of products, everything from tree bark to coconut fiber, so there are a great deal of choices to make when it comes to buying reptile bedding. The ideal option for your cold-blooded friend depends in large part on the species and sub-species. Preferably, you intend to match your habitat's bedding to the reptiles native environment as closely as possible. As an example, snakes choose substrate made of sand, gravel and stone, wood shavings, and paper products. We especially like wood shavings due to the fact that they are 99.9 percent dust-free in addition to eco-friendly. 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 mixture of sand, silt, and coconut fiber, a combination that simulates what they would certainly find on a tropical beach. Most sand products have a probiotic added that helps to break down natural waste. They keeps 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 oomph to your habitat. If you have an animal turtle, you'll wish to get a substrate that contains riverbed sand, to bed resemble the turtle's native environment. Some reptile owners prefer to put a carpet liner in their pet's habitat. This product can be made use of with most reptiles and can be cut to fit your tank. A carpet liner offers a soft surface area for your pet's underbelly. You can add other bedding items, such as bark, wood shavings, or moss over the carpet. Animal carpets are easy to mount and also aid in decreasing reptile odors. They can be eliminated, rinsed to clean, and reinserted into your pet environment. At Liz's Pet Shop, our educated personnel will be happy to answer each of your animal reptile concerns, including what type of bedding is best for your pet. They can also inspect to see if a particular item remains in stock or special order a product for you. We welcome you to visit our Chicago, IL shop soon.
