    May I ask what type sand you use?

    In the USA calci-sand is commonly sold. That "encourages" leos to lick it, expecially if they are searching for additional calcium.

    I've been using Exo Terra Desert Sand for years. I dont think it has calcium in it (atleast it hasnt been specifically enriched with calcium) so i dont think my gecko has any interest in eating it at all.
