My Russian tort Hank is in cypress mulch. I spot clean her enclosure (a wooden Zoo Med Tortoise House) daily after work. I will occasionally see very small whiteish almost light beige colored little bugs on remaining lettuce scraps or poop. I don’t see them in large quantities, usually a few here or there on the food dish. I feed Hank around 8:30 AM during the week and am not able to spot clean until after 6:00 PM. I’m guessing that these little buggies are Springtails/Snow Fleas? If that sounds about right to you or your torts experience please advise! If the buggies are harmless, I’m not too worried but wanted to reach out to the community just in case.

They're harmless, in fact they help to clean up waste.
