That's a lot of paper towels. If your Leos are adults, I recommend play sand from Kmart. You can buy a big bag and sterilize it in the oven on a pan for about $4.

I don't recommend using sand for juveniles because they may ingest too much, develop impactions, and die. In fact,I keep an empty sweater box just for feeding the lizards in, so they don't accidently ingest the sand.

I beleive Calcium Carbonate(CaCO3) is also the main ingredient used for making cement. Check it out closely, before use. You want to make sure it is truly 100% digestable. If you do decide to use it, please let us know how it works out.

So, how many Leopard Geckos do you have now?
