Yeah good link you can get a ton more on the web but this one is easy to read. I first heard of this on the bearded dragon forum with play sand, I disregarded it and used play sand anyways. When my bearded dragon went to lay eggs I desperately needed to get more sand for her as it was winter and they didn't have play sand in stock. I thought I know I can use sand blaster sand and went to walsmart. The sand blaster sand I got had a warning on it because it contained silica! Looking at the BBC link Tuataras gives it seems to differentiate between the sand blaster silica (crystalline)and other kinds "Other forms of silica, such as glass, are less of a health risk as they are not as toxic to the lungs." The reason I brought this up is because it is very dusty when I stick my head in the cage and rewet the substrate. Use your own good judgment. I think I'm going to continue buying play sand even though it says silica on it (assuming it's the glass kind). I gotta replace that sand blaster sand I still have!
