Substrate FYI

Just an FYI...

I have a russian tortoise and I had researched substrates for him. The best I found was a mix of topsoil and playsand. However, I found that the soil was getting in his eyes and irritating them when he burrowed. I had to put saline in his eyes to clear out the sand.

I found cypress mulch at Home Depot for cheap that actually seems better for him. So I just wanted to let anyone know who is wondering the same thing I was when I got my tortoise.
