A blended substrate to help create the ideal environment for Leopard Geckos and other desert species.
ProRep Leo Life is part of the species specific “life” series of substrates and has been designed to meet the needs of Leopard Geckos and other desert species. In the wild there are few species that actually live on pure sand and so Leo Life has been designed to mimic the sandy soil more typical of desert habitats. Leo Life contains a mixture of sand and soil to create a realistic looking and feeling substrate which encourages natural behaviour, such as digging and foraging, and aids the maintenance of a suitable environment. The addition of soil to the mixture reduces the risk of impaction sometimes seen with pure sand, while enhancing the moisture retention ability of the substrate. In the wild many desert species of reptile will naturally spend time in areas of relatively high humidity, such as under rocks or down burrows, which aids with hydration and shedding.
Leo Life has been designed to allow keepers to reproduce this. When sprayed water is absorbed into the substrate and slowly released. By spraying under hides, or in specific areas it is possible to create local areas of humidity which the animals can use as they need. The may choose to spend the day or night in a humid area, rest there when shedding or simply dig in the damp areas to gain extra humidity.
Leo Life is suitable for Leopard Geckos and many other reptiles from arid environments.
