Default Re: chinchilla sand

I agree with Larry. Chinchilla sand is not safe. It is too fine and will dry out their skin. I've never see any place that recommends it but there are a lot of sites that recommend things that aren't safe. There was one of the forums that someone used it and it caused eye irritation. It might have been on CnQ. Julie, do you remember?
