Is laterite safe to use as substrate for scorps? I was planning to mix some coco fiber with it so the colors are the same

I mix Zoo Med Excavator clay with coco fiber for color, but laterite would have a much more robust color. I'd try it for bark scorpions.

Also, thanks for keeping the place lively Neil.  geek

Yeah i figured that much since laterite is mostly clay or silt only just brick red. I have the lateritic soil type though so chances of having sharp grains or hardening clay particles are nil.

Haha always a pleasure Very Happy
