Vinny,
I used fine sand for a colony of Eryx conicus for 20 years with newborns to adults and never had any issues. After millions of years on sandy soils, their systems have evolved to deal with it and can pass small quantities with absolutely no issues. I also believe they feel more secure under it than shavings or gravel, and newborns will start feeding more readily on sand than with any other substrate.

Kelly
