Zoo Med™ VITA SAND™ Reptile Sand is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from does its job but very dusty While this sand has a fairly natural appearance, it is so dusty that not even warm water can wash it off my bearded draons. The dust gets everywhere and cannot be good for the animals breathing it in. Every time my beardie ran around his cage he would kick up a ton of dust which spread out over all the surfaces inside the cage. I can't say I recommend this product, though it is a step up from calcium sand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very dissaointed I bought this for my sons geckos in a neutral light orange/red color. Not only was it insainly dusty, but it stained everything!!! Our geckos were orange within a day of shedding and stayed orange untill the next shed! regular warm water soaks had no effect. They were stained orange until the next shed! I threw out the water bowl because it turned that orange color around the edges and It wouldn't wash off!!! So very dissaopinted. what is the point of having beautiful geckos if the substrate is going to stain them orange! horrible!! doesn't even dererve one star.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It looks good in tank but... I really really love the fact its a different color but it has stained my Beardie even after him getting a bath. Also when getting it out it makes the room extremely dusty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from krazykc Didn't like the look of the carpet so set put for something nicer and afar for our 2 beardies,we got the blue to match the paint in the room,they seem to be more active with it and it has calcium in it and more to there natural environment,only problem is when they go in there water bowl and get out they become what ever color sand you have,our's is blue so now our beardies have surf feet,not a big deal but next time were getting a more natural color that matches our color of our beardies

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea for sand This is a great idea but it did turn beardie orange. Great concept but the fine sand stains and creates dust which counteracts its intentions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome color but... I got the Orange and it looked great but it's so dusty and stains my beardies and the glass of the terrarium.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dusty! I used a little bit (like a quarter of a bag for part of my leopard gecko terrarium.It got dust EVERYWHERE! I do not suggest you get this product because it also turned my gecko's belly orange(the color of the sand). There is alot better sand out there...
