For a lay bin, washed play sand damp enough to hold a tunnel is best

I mix 1/2 washed play sand and half potting mix. Works pretty good, just make sure it’s damp enough to hold when your chameleon digs a hole, or the dirt could collapse and suffocate your Cham while she’s digging.
Would this soil be good?

It’s very hard to find soil without perlite and other additions. Organic garden soil is just plain soil and mixed with the sand, should be fine.
