Our Vita-Sand is an all natural substrate that contains no artificial colors or color sealers. We've enhanced our substrate with added vitamins and beta carotene that may help provide increased health benefits for your pet.* In addition, the ultra fine grade particles help prevent against impaction from over consumption. Ideal for bearded dragons, uromastyx lizards, monitors, geckos (including leopard geckos), and desert tortoises. *This is not a substitute for dietary supplements.
