Sterilsed soil is best....mix it with some peat moss for a lighter mix....cheap, safe, natural.

I have a dig box with alfalfa pellets for my beardie. IDK about leos, but for beardies alfalfa is very digestable. You just have to make sure it doesn't get wet, because it molds easily.

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
