To heat from below
For reptiles that require heat from below, This can be achieved with a little creative land planning. The spot that has belly heat needs to be between 1/8th and 1/4th in thick for enough heat to penetrate. This actually works better than Repticarpet or tile as the heat is evenly distributed and retained for longer. In the attached pictures, the right half has heat on an "on/off" thermostat and is able to maintain floor heat at 88-92 Degrees at all times.
To use by itself
Carefully empty into enclosure, go slow to avoid dust. Wet clay just enough to form caverns and hills, I feel it works best when combined with Driftwood, Slate, Stone or Cork bark to create better climbing opportunities and help build up hills. While drying, the clay may crack as it shrinks, just re-wet the cracks and rub smooth. To Redecorate or fix crumbling, just soak the area with a reptile safe spray bottle, and reform.
To create a more naturalistic soil
Combine equal parts Excavator clay and organic topsoil and moisten. Be sure there are no Fertilizers, Natural or otherwise in the soil. This mixture will not be able to form tall structures, But will hold Burrows extremely well and will be easier for reptiles to dig in.
As with any Pet product PLEASE research thoroughly the needs of that specific animal before Purchasing.
But I finally settled with a single tunnel and a couple of 'hills'. After letting it dry, I was extremely disappointed to see hard clumps of sand coating the entire thing. I was hoping for more of a clay-like substrate, so my juvenile bearded dragon could go on it, but instead he just licks and eats the sand. I can't let him on it, so it was a big waste of time AND money for me.
