I've just been using soil in my tortoise table for my hermann tortoise, despite most people saying use a sand/soil combination.

What is the purpose of using sand in there as well?! And is it safe?

Thanks

The purpose of sand is to 'lighten' the soil, and prevent it compacting down, however a lot of people on here feel that it has potential to irritate the eyes, so they prefer not to use it.
