Special Tortoise Substrate
We have chosen the best possible tortoise substrate for this kit. Atlas tortoise substrate is a wheat based ground pellet
It is made from 100% pure wheat straw and is completely biodegradable making it eco-friendly. This bedding absorbs over 400% moisture and eliminates odours. Soft and virtually dust-free, it also leaves the smallest ecological footprint compared to other bedding such as peat or wood shavings.
The pellets are crushed which results in a more natural texture than many other commercial tortoise substrates. This is to encourage natural behaviours such as digging.
Soft, clean and virtually dust-free. We always include a large packet of our hay bedding. This can be placed in your tortoises bedding area and will allow your pet to nestle down in comfort. As a bonus, it is also 100 % edible for all tortoise species and completely eco-friendly.
Food and Water Bowls
Many reptile food and water dishes are unsuitable for tortoises due to their high sides. Our tortoise water dish has low sides with a slope leading to the bowl. This ensures easy access for your pet while maintaining a stable base so the dish cant be tipped. These dishes are made from high grade, food quality resins to make them completely safe and eay to keep clean.
Tortoise Food pellets
We have included a 170g pot of Komodo tortoise diet to help get you started.
Komodo Tortoise Diet has been holistically formulated to provide a complete nutritional diet for popular European pet tortoise species such as the Mediterranean Tortoise and the Horsfield’s Tortoise. The diet is high in fibre, low in protein and has a calcium to phosphorus ratio of 3.5:1.
Top Tip: Komodo tortoise diets are formulated to provide a perfect balance of nutrients. Tortoises also love to eat other fresh foods such as dandelions, watercress, bramble and even roses! These are great food choices, and if it’s good for your tortoise then we’re all for it too!
To guarantee that your pet is receiving enough Calcium in their diet, we have included a calcium diet supplement. In the wild, tortoises have access to a much larger range of foods than we can offer in captivity. Even the most well kept tortoise will benefit from the addition of Calcium powder.
The Calcium:Phosphorus ratio is very important in ensuring healthy bone and shell growth.
