    Hi all

    Looking for a bit of advice. What is the best subtrate to use with a horsefield tortoise. Keep getting different advice.

    Currently using zoo med soil.

    Carla.

    There are lots of acceptable substrates: cypress mulch and orchid bark are the two I use.

    Coco coir works best for little babies, and orchid bark works best for adults.
