ProRep Beardie Life Substrate 10kg

ProRep Beardie Life is part of the species specific life series of substrates and has been designed to meet the needs of Bearded Dragons and other desert species. In the wild there are few species that actually live on pure sand and so Beardie Life has been designed to mimic the sandy soil more typical of desert habitats. Beardie Life contains a mixture of sand and soil to create a realistic looking and feeling substrate which encourages natural behaviour, such as digging and foraging, and which aids the maintenance of a suitable environment. The addition of soil to the mixture reduces the risk of impaction sometimes seen with pure sand, while enhancing the moisture retention ability of the substrate.

This product is covered by our Safe Delivery Guarantee

  • Designed for Bearded Dragons
  • Designed to mimic a natural sandy soil environment
  • Encorages digging and foraging
  • The addition of soil reduces the risk of impaction

Lucky Reptile Desert Bedding 7 Litre

Desert Bedding is a soil mixture developed in particular for desert and savannah type terrariums.

In nature only few animals are living on sand, most are actually avoiding sand. Therefore it is better to use more natural substrates. Desert Bedding is recreating the soil in arid regions and has a high clay content which allows the animals to dig burrows. In the lower regions of the substrate the humidity can be kept higher which is important since a lot of desert reptiles like uromastyx can take up humidity over their skin.

  • Imitates soil from arid regions
  • Loose substrate allows the animal to dig

ProRep Spider Life Substrate 1 Litre

ProRep Spider Life is part of the species-specific life series of substrates and has been created to meet the needs of spiders and scorpions originating from humid habitats, including burrowing species.

It is a blend of ingredients that provide the ideal mix of structure and moisture retention whilst promoting natural digging and burrowing behaviour.

Directions: Spread the substrate evenly over the bottom of the enclosure to a depth suitable for the species. For most species 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) is adequate but burrowing species may require 2-4 inches (5-10cm) of substrate in order to construct their burrows correctly. Spot-clean regularly to remove soiled substrate and replace completely every 2-3 months or as needed. Keep the substrate evenly moist but avoid making it too wet.

This product is covered by our Safe Delivery Guarantee

  • Created for spiders and scorpions
  • For humid habitats
  • Great for burrowing species
  • Easy to spot clean and will last 2-3months
  • Can be used in a laying box to promote natural digging

ProRep Tortoise Life Substrate 10 Litre

ProRep Tortoise Life is part of the species-specific life series of substrates and has been created to meet the needs of tortoises originating from arid habitats, particularly Mediterranean and Russian tortoises.

Tortoise life is a 50:50 mixture of high quality top soil and play sand with a little limestone grit added to provide some Calcium if the substrate is eaten. This mixture simulates the texture and moisture retention characteristics of the soils found in their natural habitats much more closely than other substrates.

It is also suitable for many species of lizards that originate from arid habitats.

Directions: Spread the substrate evenly over the bottom of the enclosure to a depth of at least 2 inches (5cm) for young animals and up to 6 inches (15cm) or more for mature animals. Russian tortoises particularly may need a deeper substrate as they burrow extensively. Spot-clean daily to remove soiled substrate and replace completely every 2 or 3 weeks.

Areas of the substrate can be sprayed to provide local humidity but avoid making the substrate too wet.

This product is covered by our Safe Delivery Guarantee

  • Perfect for Mediterranean tortoises
  • Mixture of high quality top soil and sand
