I tried it. The pea-sized gets smelly fast, since liquids pass right through it and cannot be seen.

The better gravel is the more sandy type. The grains are large enough to not stick to everything like play sand does, but small enough to clump when the snake defecates. Certain stores carry it. I think it is also sold as sandblasting sand.

I ended up using my mixture of Sani-Chip and dry pine in place of gravel. If you want to use gravel, do look for the smaller grain type (basically very large grain sand).
