If so could you please tell me were I would purchase this from and the name if it please. Also I am a bit worried about keeping her warm at night as last night she felt quiet cold. My heating at home is set to 18 degrees is this sufficient for her Or would I need some sort if heating at night. She is in a tortoise table. Also do I need extra bedding in her hide ? Please help as I just want the best for her
I would personally just use top soil as sand can irritate their eyes. I wouldn't buy the homebase one as it has to be feed free. I got a big bag from B&Q its just top soil with nothing added and it was about 4.50 a bag, wickes also sell it but its a small bag for the money
