Good alternatives for paper towel?

Hey there, strangers of the internet. As the title suggests I'm searching for an alternative substrate to paper towel, which had been working for a little while but now my beardie has starting nibbling it and sometimes eating the fibers while hunting crickets. It's started to show in his stool although there are no further health concerns, I'd like to avoid any vet visits if possible. I'd love to hear you guy's input on what I should use instead, repticarpets and loose substrate are out of question but I hear tile or cabinet liner works well... Is this true? If it is, which of the two would you most suggest?

Either are good options but unless you have the ability to cut the tile it might be hard to get the fit you want.

My 2 year old male dragon has been shedding for 2-3 weeks. I’m worried about it being a stuck shed. I’ve seen on other websites they should not soak and then I’ve seen that they should be soaked. So my question is when should I soak him?
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
