All on the bottom of the box

I don’t know what’s happening lately, I opened the box and everything was squished. But what really upset me, the sand was opened and all on the bottom of the box. So there was none that I can use.

leaky sand box

Sent to me open, sand was leaking from box, 10lb bag turned into a 7lb bag because of shipping loss.

Hammy + sand = love

I really like the sand which is why I keep buying it. My only complaint would be this...I bought the sand twice and my daughter also buys this sand and every time we get it, there are holes in the bag so sand gets on everything else and we also leave a sand trail from the door to where ever we take the box. It would be nice if the sand could be put in a bag before but in the box to help contain all the sand. I pay for a full bag but never get a full bag.

not good for hamster sand bath or litter box

It started out dry. But seemed to retain moisture. It would clump up and get stuck on my hamsters face. I ended up throwing it all away. I would not recommend for hamsters.
