I have no idea what would be available to you where you are tbh, if you can get children's play sand you could use that, it just needs drying out in the oven before use, if there are any other brands you can link to I'd be happy to have a look although it's not easy to know how good a sand is without actually seeing it, some are more dusty than others.

Playsand might be your best bet, most chinchilla sands in the US tend to be very dusty so it’s probably the same where you are too.

Im from Mexico, so its a job to find ham safe things or ham things in general, cages? DIY it, bedding? Order it from Amazon, or go to Petco (which only exists in my city, so if you happen to live somewhere else in Mexico, good luck pal) Toys? Amazon, Petco. Wheel? Amazon. I dont have a bath sand because of that and I just saved enough for the tiny friends farm which was (36 dollars for me plus shipping) and turned out to be unsafe so I just did not buy it.

Ill try and get play sand and will try and see any other brands which could do and link em. Thanks

Children’s playsand that has been washed & cleaned beforehand and is non toxic. If you do get that put a bit out to dry as it’ll come damp.
