Beardies will eat calci sand, and it clumps together, causing impaction in the stomach.

If its a young beardie, paper towels or newspaper are the best substrates. An older beardie can go on tiles, vinyl or play sand- which is much finer and doesn't clump

Hope this helps: victory:

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.

My beardie is on sand, and I have no problems :2thumb:
