what hay can i use for my tortoise to sleep in. i have some that rabbits use but i dont know where i can get readigrass or any other hay before i go away in a week or so so buying and having it posted could be an issue.
you should be able to get 'graze on' or 'readigrass' (same product different name) from most petshops, horse feed places or ebay, hay isn't advisable because it harbours dust and mites whereas readigrass is freeze dried chopped grass with none of the above. Its taken the place of aubiose which used to be popular untill cases were reported of male torts taking the product into their rectums and some cases of the gut being perforated.
Normal 'hay' (not readigrass) isn't recommended really for tortoise use as it can be too drying, scratch eyes and also harbors spores when it gets damp. I just use top soil for mine to bed down in and they can then dig about and scrape in it and get comfy :2thumb:
