Hi all just wanted some of your opinions on substrate for a bearded dragon, at the moment Randel is using just normal desert sand from P@H but I was wanting to change him to something more cleaner and less dusty for him any ideas? Thanks x x

Kitchen roll...best change I ever made. Easy to maintain & you dont need to worry about them getting a mouthful of sand to go along with dinner. Its easy to remove the "toilet" area, clean & replace the kitchen roll. It may not be as natural looking or as "pretty" but does the job brilliant and I stick to non-coloured so looks like white sand and looks good matching everything

If there's any tips or advice you need for your bearded dragon don't forget to visit www.yourbeardeddragon.co.uk - if you don't want to use sand then other alternatives can be carpet, newspaper or paper towels i.e Kitchen roll - much like what bubbles87 recommended! :-)
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.

lotsofcats: It won't be for long. When I had kittens I just used to sit and watch them for ages - are you doing that yet?

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
