"Whatsit? Intruder in my house?"
Sphinx investigating as I was trying to snap a picture of her. Didn’t work out as planned!
Sphinx is a leopard gecko with one hell of a personality. She’s wiggly, grumpy and insanely curious. I’ve had her for 10 years so she’s kind of an old lady~

What kind of substrate is that cutie on?

Ground walnut shells! It’s very convenient and easy to clean.

Ground walnut shells and any other loose substrate are EXTREMELY dangerous for leopard geckos, it can cause infections and impaction very very VERY easily.
Cut slate tile or paper towel are much cheaper, healthier, easier to clean, and even more convenient than that. 

Really? I had no idea! I’ve had this kind of substrate recommended by a breeder…also used it for over a decade and Sphinx never had any health issues…

Ah well here’s the thing, some breeders will stick to things just because that’s how they’ve always done it, and wonder why parts of their collection die off in masses. Just because they’re a breeder, doesn’t mean they’re 100% right, it helps to check around.
(Just google ‘Crushed walnut impaction’ you’ll get the gist.)
Impaction doesn’t show itself until it is far too late to treat. I’ve got a plethora of links and articles under the ‘substrate’ tag on the blog to back it up, if you need additional info.

Oh well, thanks a lot for the info! I’ll go back to reptile carpets as soon as I can.
