Finding the right bedding for your pet snake, turtle or lizard can be tough. There are several items to pick from.
The right option for your cold-blooded companion depends on the species and sub-species. You want to match your habitat's bedding to the reptiles natural surroundings as closely as possible.
As an example, snakes favor substrate made of 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 consistency.
Hermit crabs like a mixture of sand, silt, and coconut fiber, a combination that mimics what they would find on a tropical coastline. Most sand products have a probiotic added that assists to break down organic waste. They keeps your pet's environment clean and fresh-smelling. You can get sand items in a variety of colors, 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 resemble the turtle's natural surroundings.
Some reptile owners choose to put 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 add other bedding products, such as bark, wood shavings, or moss over the carpet. Pet carpets are simple to set up and also help in reducing reptile smells. They can be removed, washed to clean, and reinserted into your reptile's environment.

What Our Customers Say
We went in looking to get more info on raw food for our dog who has allergies. We were overwhelmed by the options available. Danielle saw we were overwhelmed and helped us navigate to options and suggested we do a home pet intolerant test to see exactly what he is allergic to instead of buying expensive food that he may not be able to eat. We are so glad we went in. The store has a huge option of foods toys treats etc for all pets.
Love this store!! I love the fact they have Health Extension dry dog food here, and to those who know, they don't sell it anywhere close by, so thank you!!! They have so much space to walk through with your furry baby and the cashier was super friendly! Thank you for recommending the barktober candle! Definitely coming back!!
I absolutely adore this store. I live close to Chicago, but everytime I have a reason to go any where near the store, I stop in. Staff is super knowledgeable, and there is so much variety! It is great for people that feed a more natural diet. It is also a great store to explore novel proteins if your pets have allergies.
They are so helpful and concerned about your pet
We have been bringing our dog here for a full groom for years now and they always do a great job and he smells great!
