Exo Terra Sand Mat Desert Terrarium Substrate 19.5" x 9.75" fits 10 Gallon Terrariums (Mfg# PT2565)
Excellent for beardies
This sand mat fits perfectly in our Exto-Terra front open terrarium (size large). It's easy to clean and the beardie seems to enjoy it. Plus it gives a nice desert look to his area.

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.

We use two of these as mats for our bearded dragon's tank. They work well and she seems to like the surface. The only complaint we have is that the gravel surface wears off fairly quickly so we have to keep purchasing new ones. Wish there was a way to clean them without the gravel falling off.

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.)
