Hi there

Would limestone chippings suitable if added in the outdoor enclosure or even mixed with soil?

Chippings come in various sizes, I would assume chippings below 1cm size will be potentially dangerous in case of ingestion by juvenile tortoises. Would chippings of 1cm+ be suitable and not dangerous?

Your feedback/experience will be very much appreciated.

Thank you

I'd avoid to be honest as they will always attempt to bite them.larger pieces of limestone rock would be a better idea ;)
