This sand is bad, I got it a while back but i will never buy it again. First it smells like a rotten turkey, it died by beardie's legs, belly, and tail. I won't be buying this product anymore. I'd rather use paper towel than this sand
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I put it in my crabs tank and it smells like rotten milk. I thought it might be the crabs, but I smelled inside the bag and it smelled the same. I would not recommend this at all it is stinking up my whole house.

I used this a while back for my skink and this sand dyed my lizard! His face, belly and paws were all orange from rolling around in this sand. Plus because of all of the added vitamins it has a weird smell to it...
For sand it covers well, one bag lasts a long time and I like the options of different colours...but I will not buy again. This just has too many faults.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Exactly what I had wanted. Great product for my adult Bearded Dragon. Less dust rising up through the screen to the lights and my house than the walnut shell substrate I was using.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I have used the white sand before so I thought I would try this Outback Orange Sand for my Bearded Dragon, Leopard Geckos, and Blue Tongue Skink. I am dissapointed with how the orange dye on the sand comes off on EVERYTHING. Everything in their cages has turned orange and the cup I used to put the sand in the cage took forever to clean. Of course my animals dont seem to mind it...but I would recommend using the white sand or any sand without color.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
