Thank you for the reply! I will look into it when I go to Pets at Home later today. Iíve read some concerns regarding calcium in the sand meant for reptiles which could be harmful to hamster, do you know anything about thatís?

Also Iím assuming that this sand doesnít have to be baked (reptile one)? I would prefer to buy this 5kg rather than 15kg Argos play sand due to storage reasons.
