The Ultimate Terrarium Substrate!
Lugarti's Natural Reptile Bedding (NRB) is a special blend of high quality sphagnum peat moss, extremely fine sand, and natural clay. It is specifically formulated to provide the most ideal habitat for reptiles housed in a terrarium setting. Offer your reptiles the BEST bedding while saving countless trees! Once you've tried this substrate for your tortoise, lizard or gecko, you will never go back to whatever bedding you're currently using.
No other bedding does what Natural Reptile Bedding does; you can landscape it, mold it, create burrows/tunnels that won't collapse, it holds moisture extremely well, when dry it stays firm yet animals can still burrow in it, it's not heavy or messy, has superior odor control, is safe for newborn reptiles with no impaction issues, grows live plants and destroys zero trees to make.
When used properly, NRB is designed to provide essential humidity while the surface remains dry to the touch, thus preventing any fungal or bacterial infections that can be caused by other substrates. It has natural mold inhibitors (derived from blueberries) that help prevent it from molding, often experienced with coco coir products.
NRB also offers the absolute BEST odor control and is the only substrate on the market that can be safely used with newborn baby reptiles (e.g. Bearded Dragons, Leopard Geckos, Crested Geckos, Tortoises, etc.) with ZERO risk of impaction. No other substrate on the market can claim this.
NRB promotes natural digging behaviors while holding burrows exceptionally well and can be landscaped to create varying levels in a terrarium, which allows you to closely resemble a species’ natural habitat.
Looking for the perfect substrate to use for planting a vivarium with live plants? NRB is a perfect mix for growing live plants and maintaining all sorts of different plant species!
Having problems with eggs drying out after they're laid? Perhaps you didn't get to them on time, didn't know they were going to lay eggs, or just plain forgot. NRB is the BEST egg-laying substrate available. Simply add 4" - 5" of NRB packed tightly in your Lizard, Gecko, Monitor, Turtle or Tortoise enclosure and your females will not only have the best suitable egg laying site, your eggs will be perfectly safe from dehydrating for up to a month (if bedding is kept semi-moist) before collecting them for artificial incubation! No need for any special egg lay boxes. If you're breeding cooler species that don't need their eggs incubated (e.g. Crested Geckos, Gargoyle Geckos, etc.), you can leave your eggs in the substrate and allow them to hatch naturally!

Instructions For Use:
Fill terrarium and pack down firmly to a depth of at least 3" - 4” (8-10 cm), the deeper the better. Substrate should be at least 5" - 6" deep for burrowing species. As the substrate dries, simply remove any loose particles by gently running your hand over the top scraping the surface and discard. Substrate should be spot cleaned daily and completely replaced monthly (bi-monthly for babies).
