 Vermiculite

Hello, I have a savannah monitor in a tank 6.8 feet long by 3 feet wide and have in it one savannah monitor basking temp 124F and other end of tank by my temp gun is 82F and it has soil as the substrate about 1 foot deep but it has vermiculite in it and I just want to know if this is safe?

Well I’m usually an expert in anoles,but this caught my eye,No it’s not safe because when digested,the vermiculite can cause impaction and may cause death.What I would prefer is organic potting soil without any pesticides or chemicals.Goodluck
