at 18 months sand will be fine. Argos sell kiddies play sand nice and cheap- but it comes slightly damp, so its best if you dry it out in the oven first to stop your viv getting too humid.hi thanks for getting back to me yes he is about 18months old
we got told to use that sand from a pet shop
i will chance it
thanks so much for getting back to me
i agree! when i bought my hatchling beardie, 6 weeks old they gave me calci sand and as i wasnt experienced i used it!! (this was before i found this site) he then got what i thought was impaction, so we took him back to the shop and got an adult who is now very happy with another beardie (not from that shop!!)normal playsand will be fine.. calci sand is also bad as you dont know how much may of been eaten so there is no way of telling if ure beardie is getting enough or too much calcium..
alot of rep shops give calci sand away in their set ups.. personaly i think it should be stated very clearly the dangers of the stuff and shouldnt be given to any one starting a setup.. if some one is new to rep keeping and buys there rep setup etc and you find sand in it ure bound to think well a rep shop isnt going to give me something harmful..needs to stop!: victory:
