Exo Terra Sand Mat Desert Terrarium Substrate 19.5" x 9.75" fits 10 Gallon Terrariums (Mfg# PT2565)
Best substrate for realistic effects.
I have been using the felt type of liner substrate and was glad when I found a source of this new product. The Exo Terra Sand Mat Desert Terrarium Substrate is a natural looking product that works well and clean up is easy. As a bonus, it helps keep their nails filled down.
The Exo Terra Sand Mat Desert Terrarium Substrate is not something you can just throw in the washing machine like I do with the felt liners, but it is easy to spot clean. I will be transferring all of my terrariums over to this great product.

This product looks really desert like
We have a bearded dragon and we had his tank covered with the fake turf stuff but his nails would get stuck in it every once in a while so we decided to try this new mat. It's really nice and I think it keeps the bottom of the tank warmer. I think it might also help dull his nails a little since there is actual rock on the bottom of it. It might also help him when he's shedding (to rub up against it.) Cleaning it should be relatively easy since you just have to spray it off (but we haven't done this yet - we still put paper towel down in the corner he seems to like to use and it works out well.)
