    By Crickets on Jun 26, 2021

    The sand was not great my dragon didn't like it she though a fit about the sand was a waste of my money should have got the red or yellow sand

    Big hole in the bag

    By Tamika on Apr 15, 2020

    As I received my package not too long ago but today I noticed that there was a hole in the bag because the sand was going through the box itself I was not very happy with this because most of the sand in the bag was already gone. It is hard enough to get sand from stores but I didn't think this was going to happen with Chewy.

    Great sand!

    By JRM85 on Apr 11, 2020

    I actually bought this for a hamster sand bath and it’s great! I was wary of using the black, but it was the cheapest by several dollars, and it actually looks really good in the bin.

    FOR LEOPARD GECKO OWNERS AND PROBABLY OTHER REPTILE OWNERS. BE CAREFUL WITH SAND

    By MISLEADING on Feb 18, 2020

    Sand can cause impaction issues, I know for sure with leopard geckos because they like to lick a lot more than other reptiles. Use coco fiber, carpet, kitchen liners, anything other than sand. This product is very misleading because it has a leopard gecko right on the product.

    Great sand

    By ScaleDogsdad on Apr 21, 2019

    I usually use bagged top soil for my beardie we had some left over red sand so I made a beach strip along the side of her tank she has made it perfectly clear that she prefers the sand. They are TEN lb. Bags so u will need one bag for every 10 gallons u are trying to fill. And yes its dusty when it goes down so keep ur pet in a separate enclosure until it settles or blow out the dust. Once it's down I havent experienced any more dusting. Considering to the cost of this product in store and its limited availability well gladly keep ordering it here

    Dusty Sand

    By Hannah97 on Sep 13, 2018

    Although it is nice the sand acts as dust and the slightest touch causes a stir of dust

    To pricy for amount received

    By Michelle on Jul 11, 2018

    I think it is a good product but I purchased 2 bags and it still wasn’t enough for my 40gal tank. If you received more for the $$ then it would be worth it

    Works well

    By Fivel on Apr 17, 2018

    Reptilite, with calcium grains is better. Not been able to find it tough and stores are expensive.

    Great product

    By Rose on Jan 12, 2018

    The sand is very good quality. Gives a perfect layer in a 10 gallon tank and my crested gecko seems much happier with this. Product arrived with the bag broken, customer service was amazing and sent me a bag right away.
