My current set up is a big piece of sandstone with smaller bits on top to create right basking temps etc, lino tiles for the rest with some sheets of newspaper under the half log she likes to go into at night.

Currently she loves to dig up the paper and get in amongst the paper she has shredded, so was thinking of either converting this to a sandpit area with the log on top which she can then dig into, what do others do ?

I used to have sand and sandstone all over but the sand in the runners used to really annoy me, can you use shredded paper for them to bury into or would they eat it ?

The problem with anything like torn paper is that live food will disappear into it - I'd still recommend some sandy area but is it possible to keep it away from the runners just making a sandpit area as you've suggested? The alternative is fake grass except you'll need two bits - one in the viv and one in the wash!

I need to think it over I'm liking the sandpit area idea and would be easy to make, I just put a lot of sandstone in because her nails are so sharp...

Sandstone is great as it helps keep nails short plus retains heat without getting to a dangerous temp.
