If hes young, people reccomend just using kitchen roll, as theres a risk of impaction.

if he is a young beardie use kitchen roll, news paper or lino. If he above 6 months old use play sand.

NO ITS NOT.
ITS VERY DANGEROUS

AS ABOVE. USE kitchen roll for babies and play sand for juveniles and adults.

No partticulate substrate for young ones.

The Breeder of my Beardie recommended Bran. Looks okay and is completely digestible. Only suitable for a youngster, though as it's not supportive enough for an adult. It's also cheap and easy to maintain - remove the soiled areas and replace with fresh.
