Dig Box Alternatives


Beardie name(s)
Lio, Micah (deceased)
Does anyone have some good dig box ideas that don't involve substrate? I'm trying to avoid substrate as I have carpet and expect it will get tracked around everywhere and be impossible to clean. I did try out making an alternative using hay, which seemed to work okay for my last beardie, but it's difficult to clean up if certain reptiles poop in it. I've been thinking maybe some cloth strips might work, but I'm a bit worried about stuck claws. Suggestions appreciated!

Some people have used cloth strips but one owner said their beardie tried to eat a piece so there's a risk of getting impacted. If you don't want dirt tracked on to your carpet can you just check Lio's feet before you let him/her out ?

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
