I believe they are a ton of calcium/powder on them but it should be safe otherwise.

it doesnt state it has calcium or anything. It is all natural, so i guess it is safe. I am asking this question because i am going to petsmart to buy this when i get out of class.

They kill geckos, and they don't care. Leopard geckos are most often kept by young people. They buy them from big box pet stores, and are told this sand is completely safe. When the gecko strikes at it's prey, each time it gets a little sand in it's mouth. It gets impacted, and that's the end of the gecko.
And they know this.
