http://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/how-to-raise-a-healthy-sulcata-or-leopard-version-2-0.79895/I was reading another forum and for my med spur thigh I was told a mix of sand and top soil.... I was using a coconut substrate before but I have a hatchling and she was struggling to walk on it.
If avoided the pellets, and been told hay is to drying. I'm very very confused as to what to do. I only out the sand and top soil in today and it was a disaster!!!
She's covered in the stuff, her little claws, face, even had it in her eyes!!!
I immediately took it all out and went back to coco but substrate mixed with a little hay.
What should I use?
She is 3 months old.
This is bad advice and will lead tot he death of people's tortoises.You can use sand mixed with almost any other light substrate. They love to burrow in it just as the do in their natural habitats. Most of their sand ingestion comes from it being attached to their food and water source. Keep your food and water clean and they can still enjoy digging in sand. Still remember to let them soak and drink.
There is a little box at the lower left when you type in a response to a post that says "Attach files" with a little paper clip next to it. Just click that box and upload your pic. Then click the green "full image" box after uploading, followed by "Post reply" when you are all done.COS but no one yet has educated me as to how to post pictures
