ProRep Tortoise Life BIO 10ltrs
Substrate that simulates the soils fund in the natural habitat or Tortoises
- Soil blend substrate with added coco fibre perfect for Mediterranean tortoises
- Contains 66% loam topsoil
ProRep Tortoise Life BIO is a blend of professional quality loam, soft fine sand and coconut husk that provides the ideal mix of texture and moisture retention, simulating the soils found in the natural habitats of tortoises.
Building on the original, popular ProRep Tortoise Life this new substrate also includes coconut husk which allows for a lighter substrate without the mineral content. Increasing the organic material in the mix, provides peace of mind if accidentally ingested by your tortoise. ProRep Tortoise Life BIO is also suitable for many species of lizards that originate from similar habitats.
Directions: Spread the substrate evenly over the bottom of the enclosure to a depth of at least 2" (5cm) for young animals and 6" (15cm) or more for mature animals. Russian tortoises particularly may need a deeper substrate as they burrow extensively. Spot-clean daily to remove soiled substrate and replace completely every 2 or 3 weeks. Areas of the substrate can be sprayed to keep it slightly damp and so provide local humidity, but avoid making the substrate too wet.
