When I owned bearded dragons I was told all the stuff about sand causing impactation etc and not to use it as can cause digestion probleems but I have always kept beardies on sand never had a problem and to be fair in there wild ha itat they would find clay and rocks and SAND not floor tiles and kitchen paper. When I went through the argument on sand and beardies there was never hard evidence that sand could cause obstruction of any kind to a beardie and everything I was shown and found was calci sand and animal concerned was geckos that's from personal experiance. Personally I don't believe sand can be dangerous to our Beardies for simple fact it's safe for our babies and children and they swallow it it does not harm them and if husbandry is kept on top of the Bradford should not be eating sand.
