What is reptile rock substrate and why is it important for my pet reptile?
Reptile rock substrate is a specialised flooring material designed to mimic the texture and appearance of natural rocks within your pet reptile's enclosure. This type of substrate provides a comfortable and natural surface for reptiles to walk, bask, and explore. It also enhances their habitat by creating a visually appealing and stimulating environment, which promotes natural behaviours like digging and burrowing.
What are the different types of reptile rock substrate available and which one is best for my pet?
There are various types of reptile rock substrates available, each with its own characteristics. Some popular options include slate, granite, and tigers eye substrates. The best choice for your pet depends on its species, size, and natural habitat. For reptiles that require higher humidity, slate or sandstone can retain moisture well, while granite substrates offer durability and are suitable for larger reptiles. Researching your pet's specific needs and consulting with a reptile expert can help you determine the most suitable rock substrate.
