Default Re: Sand?

I wasn't very clear in my original post, sorry! What I meant is that my hamster has a large cage (Ikea detolf) with paper bedding in it. I thought having partially sand would provide some interest, because so far she's been digging a lot in her sand bath, and that it would wear her nails down even a little more than the paper bedding. I've put sand in about 1/5 of her cage, and I'll be seeing if she likes it, and I'll change it back if she doesn't. It doesn't seem to have any dust or large particles in, and I've baked it just in case. Plus this will be easier to make sure the sand stays where it's supposed to be, as before it was going everywhere and mixing with the paper substrate!
