I was thinking about something like this:

for adults leopard geckos as a bedding
technically looks like cut paper squares. Do any one have experience with something like this?
I often see it in leopard geckos boxes that are displayed in on show, but could it be used full time ?

I can't tell you for sure but there's always the chance that they will eat it. Also, unless you're planning to change it frequently, they will pee and poop in it and I think it may smell. I guess when people have rodents they just change it all the time, but I wouldn't want to have something I have to keep throwing out and replacing. That's why I use ceramic tile.

Hello. One good thing about paper towel bedding is that you can change it frequently, thus reducing any bacteria etc that may be on it. This is especially recommended for babies. I have not seen or used cut up paper. I do know that the geckos like to dig around. For me I don't like the concept of the cut up paper towels as I like to know what temp they are laying on.
