Smile I'm new to this...

Hello,

I new to this site and to being a tortoise owner. I've just got a 2yr old female Horsfield/ Russian tortoise and i'm looking for some advice on bedding.

When we got her she was (and still is) on hemp bedding but after reading up on her breed i'm thinking of changing to some kind of sand mix. I was wondering if anyone else use this on a similar tort? i've read about something called bed-a-beast but can't seem to find anywhere that sells it in the UK - and have read from some peoples experience it can get kind of clumpy and stick to their feet.

Also i'm looking for a name for her - we originally thought she was a boy but the vet thinks she is most likely female so now i'm stuck for a good name!

thanks
