Hi Cara,
The indoor enclosure is splendid. You've really done a great job and put a lot into it. I don't know whether the straw is such a good idea for her bedding as it can contain mould and spores which are not too good for torts. Perhaps others will have more helpful ideas. Anyway congrats again Cara you've certainly put a lot of thought and effort into both enclosures and I think they're great. :D
Kind Regards
Freddy :D

Thanks Freddy =D Roxy seems to like it anyway :) It's not straw I'm using it's readigrass, I have read that this is ok to use unlike hay etc..... :wacko: I'm sure I did x

WOW Cara, you can certainly tell Roxy's arrived! :LOL: Looks like she is being spoilt rotten... and why not?!! :wub:

A great enclosure, she has room for a pony!!

Can I just ask what you have used around the base of the pink flower? Tis only that recently one of my guys started eating small stones... never used to, and then had to wrestle them from her!! :rolleyes:

hi i have used graze-on which is similar to readi grass it is fine when fresh but if it gets damp or isnt changed often ,it starts to break down and will indeed harbour mold spores.also once it starts to break down it becomes incredibly dusty .so even if it appears clean and dry it must be replaced frequently as hermans do tend to urinate in their bedding.i must add you table looks lovely.

Hi Cara,
As Terry says once you change the readigrass regularly it should be fine. Hope Roxy's doing well.Take care Cara ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D

Hi again Cara,
I'd say once a week would be fine. Roxy is only a THB hatchling and wouldn't soil as much as an adult tort. Besides, anymore than once a week and you'd need bag loads of readigrass! ha! ha!!! Best of luck Cara. ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D
