  • Zilla Ground walnut

    By on

    The Zilla ground walnut bedding bags came in damaged, what I received seemed very nice. I wish I would have received the full amount of them though. Ordered four bags, got 2 full ones, and 2 open ones with a lot of the substrate rolling around inside the box. The exterior box was not damaged, so I'm not sure how these got packed the way they were.

  • Very low dust!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    Really like the consistancy and how little dust it has, I have asthma and it's been hard to find appropriate bedding and regular sand is no longer a safe option for me. I bought this for my sand boa so that he could have a more natural burrowing substrate and he seems to enjoy it much more than aspen. I have read bad things about using this bedding for lizards, and after working with it I don't feel it would be appropriate for my leopard geckos as it sticks badly as soon as it gets a hint of moisture, but I feed the snake out of its enclosure so I'm not worried about potential digestive issues with him.

  • Excellent value

    By on

    I bought this item to fill some pincushions I made as gifts. It was about half the price of crushed walnut shells on the craft market and it worked great.

  • It's a little sharp

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I'll admit, I know sand isn't the best substrate for a bearded dragon, especially with their floor-licking habits. But sometimes, reptile carpet is a hassle to keep clean and not aesthetically pleasing like loose substrate. This stuff looks pretty and is supposedly digestible, but I was surprised to learn that the tiny pieces are actually a little rough and sharp when you apply pressure. I can't imagine what it's like in a bearded dragon's tummy. This substrate looks pretty and might be good for potted plants or fairy gardens, but I'm sceptical about its safety in reptile cages. I will continue to look for other alternatives.

  • Not just for reptiles! LOL

    By on

    I use this to stuff my pincushions. It works great! ANd it sharpens the needles as I use the pincushion. Not its intended purpose, but I love it!

  • Perfect for reptiles

    By on

    I have been using this reptile bedding by Zilla for a long time now. It's affordable. Works great. The only downside is that you guys have stopped carrying the bigger bags.
