100% natural, HabiStat Tortoise Bedding is a blend of sterilised loam and sand designed specially for Mediterranean and African tortoise species. The blend of aggregates has been designed to replicate as closely as possible the natural environment that these species originate from. The bedding retains water whilst keeping a texture ideal for digging. The added limestone adds calcium if ingested. Our range of HabiStat substrates are all now packed in 100% recyclable and biodegradable paper bags. Available in 10L bag. Directions for use: Spray at regular intervals to maintain humidity levels. Spread substrate evenly across vivarium base ensuring a depth of 2-3″ (5-7.5cm) for small tortoises and 3-6″ (7.5-15cm) Do not overfill if using underfloor heating. Spot clean as required and replace regularly.
