Substrate - Shop


It is important to use the correct substrate to help create a natural enviroment for your pet. We recommend for most baby lizards to use paper towel or newspaper as a substitute & transfer onto an appropriate substrate as they get bigger.

Rememeber the lizard is chasing live food & can swallow small amounts of substrate in doing so. As babies, their stomachs are not mature enough to digest the substrate & pass it throught their body, which would result in impaction.

Snakes can also be kept on paper towel as a safe alternative . Tortoises are best on a substrate as their food can be placed on plate/dish & it doesn't move so are more unlikley to eat any substrate.
