Best Substrates For Skink & Gecko

RediChip Premium Medium Sized Coconut Chips
RediChip Premium Medium Sized Coconut Chips



Geckos and skinks make for fantastic pets, and coconut substrate is the perfect gecko and skink substrate to keep these animals safe and comfortable.

Some of the most popular pets in the gecko and skink family include leopard geckos and crested geckos, and while they can be low-maintenance pets, they rely on having a safe, humid environment in which they feel comfortable.

For years, ReptiChip has worked on and perfected the optimal leopard gecko substrate. Made from only the freshest imported Sri Lankan coconuts, ReptiChip’s bedding consists of finely shaven, triple-washed coconuts that create a dust-free, humid environment for your pets.

The biggest reptile breeders in the industry such as JKolbyka Reptiles, Always Evolving Pythons, Mutation Creation, and more use ReptiChip for their amphibian and crested gecko substrate needs because it works.

I never do reviews for anything but I have been so impressed with ReptiChip since I started using it a year ago . It comes compact and expands a crazy ton, holds humidity great and doesn't mold at all from my experience, really worth what you get for $30 maybe they give too much but hey I'll ...

This stuff is fantastic for maintaining humidity for my ball python. I foil taped the screen, have a large water bowl in the enclosure, and refill it every couple days. That’s all I have to do to maintain 65% humidity. Hydrating it was pretty straightforward, I used a big Rubbermaid bin, and ...

After much research on substrate for my ball python I decided on ReptiChip. So far, so good. It's holding the humidity at the proper level. I haven't noticed any color transferring onto my snake either which is great. The only downside to the product is when only having 1 snake it's hard ...

Ordered this to try in my BT skink's enclosure. It was easy to work with; I just sprayed it with a hose and waited for a while, gradually chipping pieces off with a shovel. It did take longer than 15 minutes to rehydrate; it was closer to 45 mins, but still not a ton of effort. It filled ...

I absolutely love this substrate. I use it in a 18x18x24" glass cage for my brazilian rainbow boa, and it's dense enough that it provides a solid floor, but it's loose enough that he can really dig in it, which he loves and does every day. When I first got it I thought it would be too scratchy ...

I've had terrible luck with trying different beddings for my snakes, and so many ordered both online and bought at stores in person have either been awful quality or housing mites. I read the reviews for this and decided to give it a try and extremely impressed! I have absolutely NO complaints, ...

I've tried different types of substrate and this is the best stuff I've come across. Holds humidity well. The size of this block covers A LOT! I filled two terrariums and still had plenty leftover. Super easy to get the block ready. There's a YouTube video on their website, but basically you ...
