Tortoises like to hide and often burrow themselves into the substrate in times of unfavorable weather conditions. In the substrate, they enjoy stable temperatures and an increased humidity level. In order, that tortoise can follow their natural behaviour inside the vivarium we have developed Tortoise Bedding together with well known breeders and zoological institutions. Lucky Reptile Tortoise Bedding maintains the humidity,stays in form but still fluffy and does not mould. It is not only odour neutral but even binds bad odours actively. Its soft fibrous structure and the lack of sand guarantees that it is safe when ingested accidentally by the tortoises. Dull or abraded shells are prevented for a healthy development of the tortoise plastrons. Thanks to its fluffy structure Tortoise Bedding is a good insulator and dampens temperature changes while the animals are burrowed in it. Natural clay minerals as additives ensure a uniform substrate humidity which is why Tortoise Bedding is readily accepted as egg laying substrate. For the same reasons, it is also excellent for hibernation - not only in outdoor enclosures! The pH valuew as adjusted to the needs of tortoises using natural means. No artificial additives or fertilizers are used - Lucky Reptile Tortoise Bedding is completely natural and bio-degradable.
Like most substrates Tortoise Bedding is not suitable for use with floorheating.
