    I know this thread is old but I would like to explain a test that I did with a sand/soil mixture. I first tried this in a bucket and tried it in Asia's enclosure for a day but the soil kept on getting loose every time water evaporated. So I quite the idea of a naturalistic enclosure for a couple of months with two buckets of experimental soil mixtures out in the garage. I came back to find that the mixture that wasn't used in Asia's enclosure was very compact and firm while the mixture that I tried in Asia's enclosure was still loose as before. I remembered that before I left the buckets I had soaked the mixture that was now very compact in water. I've mixed the sandy soil that was used for Asia with water and added a little bit more sand have it under a basking bulb currently it seems to have become nearly compact as the other soil mixture but I'm still waiting to see what happens once it has completely dried out. This is in a plastic shoe box and I have it about 1 inch deep. The firmly compacted sand/soil mix that I'm trying to repeat is about 5 inches deep.

    Came back to report my results the substrate is completely compact . Oh and just to give you an idea of how compact this soil is, my finger hurts just for trying to imitate my leopard gecko digging into it Iím better off creating the burrows for her with a good metal hand shovel. I believe itís not a good substrate choice if you want something thatís ďeasyĒ for your leopard gecko to dig into.
