Ingredients: Ground English Walnut Shells.
Directions for use:
Pour bedding into terrarium and landscape as desired. A depth of one to two inches is recommended. Greater bedding depths may be required for many burrowing reptiles.
Remove animal waste and soiled bedding daily. Replace bedding monthly or as needed.
Feeding: Always feed reptiles from a shallow bowl or plate and use a separate bowl for fresh water. When feeding live food, it is best to feed the reptile in a separate container such as a cloth bag (snakes) or a terrarium that contains no bedding.
Humidity: It may be necessary to add humidity by misting, depending on the species of reptile. If misting is necessary, the bedding will absorb any excess moisture, which will then be released back into the terrarium over time.
