HabiStat Tortoise Bedding is a 100% natural blend of sterilised loam and sand designed specially for Mediterranean and African tortoise species. Though it can also be used for lizards, particularly those from drier temperate habitats that like to burrow, like Lacertids.

The blend of sand, soils and rock has been designed to replicate as closely as possible the natural environment that the more commonly kept tortoises, such as Hermann’s and Spur Thighs, originate from. The bedding retains water whilst keeping a texture ideal for digging.

The added limestone adds calcium if ingested.

The range of HabiStat substrates are now packed in 100% recyclable and biodegradable paper bags.

Sold in a 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.
