ideally they should be on something like slate tiles, with a little sand in the joints........this helps stop their nails getting to long, and its as close to natural as you can get.

How old are they now?

What wieghts are they?

When they eat do they tend to get the cricket first time or miss?

Leos don't really belong on sand. There natural environment is hard rocks but they also do live on tuff flakey dirt but no really sand....

I would keep him on slate tiling or as I do reptile carpet! I'll see if I can get a piccy for you not taken one of Dave in ages!

you won't need sand for breeding as they will want to lay somewhere damp and sand is a bit pants really( unless your a chameleon!). when it comes to it you just put a laying box in..an old margerine tub a hole cut in it with sphagnum moss does the job...
