Wow! Great recommentdation so far. I actually might have found what I have been searching for. I just bought ZooMed's Repti Sand, which comes in 2 forms: Desert White and Natural Red. I bought the Desert white (naturally). The grains are so fine almost to the point of being silky. It doesn't create dust and my uro seems to love it. As soon as I removed the Coconut Bark and replaced it with the Repti Sand, there was an obvious difference. With the coconut bark, my uro just glided over it and seemed to just 'make believe' it wasn't there. Now with this ZooMed Repti Bark, he lays on it, burrows in it and thrashes in it to the point of getting 'comfortably' calm under the basking light. With the coconut bark, which I only filled half of his enclosure with, he would rather lay on the other half which was just bare newspaper. All in all, with this new Repti Sand, he seems very happy just by looking at his activity (and comfort) level. I have mentioned previously, I'll wait a month and see how this new ZooMed product works out, although I can already clearly see the results with just about 2 hours of having it in the enclosure. By the way, has anyone used this product? Because I sure don't see it in any caresheet or anyone else recommending it.
