I don’t recommend this product for bearded dragons even though it appears in the bearded dragon search listings. I don’t know if it’d be beneficial to any other reptiles, I only own and am educated on bearded dragons. Newspaper or a mat is much better and safer for your dragon as long as you are a good pet owner and keep the tank cleaned regularly. … more
