BULK Tortoise Life Substrate (25 Kg)
Your Shopping Basket
25kg Bulk ProRep Tortoise Life is part of the species-specific life series of substrates and has been created to meet the needs of tortoises originating from arid habitats, particularly Mediterranean and Russian tortoises.
It is a blend of ingredients that provides the ideal mix of texture and moisture retention to simulate the soils found in their natural habitats.
The addition of pure limestone to the mix provides additional calcium if the substrate is eaten. It is also suitable for many species of lizards that originate from arid habitats.
Directions: Spread the substrate evenly over the bottom of the enclosure to a depth of at least 2” (5cm) for young animals and up to 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 provide local humidity but avoid making the substrate too wet.

Not recommended for large enclosures like my 12 by 3
Sadly I don't recommend this stuff to anyone to buy for their huge vivarium enclosures, as this stuff drys out very fast and turns very, very dusty and does solid hard, there for needs replacing loads of time and loads needed. looks nice. only recommend for vivariums no bigger than 6 by 2 by 2 feet. for very huge tortoise enclosure i strongly recommend Lucky reptile BIO LIFE substrate, that is ideal as being bio very good to grow plants and weeds in tortoises enclosures. 3 stars because of how dusty it goes and not good humidity and goes solid hard in huge enclosures
