  1. Snakes
    I've decided to change up the substrate I'm housing my snakes on. They are currently happy on a mix of Humus/Cocofibre with a sprinkling of small size Orchid Bark. It allows plenty of burrowing and helps boost humidity just a bit around shedding. Plus it smells divine and looks pretty good. But...

    Hey all, Just wanted some advice on substrate for 2 Indian Stars. I haven't actually got them yet but I'm preparing their house ready for them. Can anyone tell me if this brand of topsoil is suitable please? And what mix do I need with play sand? Thanks a lot...
  4. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hey, I'm wondering if anyone knows any good sites that will deliver topsoil? Homebase and B&Q only seem to do collection (or delivery on very large/bulk orders) but I'm currently not able to do a collection and don't need 875L of the stuff so was hoping they'd be somewhere that can deliver to...

    Ok, so I have finally finished changing my substrate from pure sand to a topsoil mix. I went and dug up some topsoil from my parents place (they have a large untouched pile of dirt in one of their fields so perfectly natural stuff). I didn't take pics throughout as my hands were pretty grubby...

    Hello, I would like a bit of advice about topsoil for my parents Hermans Tortoises. They purchased them about three years ago from a garden centre. They were mis-sold all the usual stuff such as the vivarium and heat mats etc. but soon learnt that this was not good for them so now they have...

    Hi everyone :) I spent the morning building a tortoise table for my little guy as he's getting bigger now :D Its 4ft x 3ft and I'm going to fill part of it with a topsoil/playsand mix.
