. I am using coconut fiber for my russian tortoise. I thought the substrate needed to be dry, but after reading i know it needs to be damp. So i use a squirt bottle and spray it with water twice a day. (If this needs done more often please let me know) Or should i take it out and start fresh, or mix it with something moist?. I did not buy the moist block. I got the dry coconut fiber bag. Also it seems to get on his face and in his eyes. should i be concerened? I know they are diggers, so i thought it was ok. Thanks.
