I've been using different substrates and I can't find one that I like for my 4 year old russian tortoise.
I've tried 50/50 play sand and topsoil. It irritated his eyes and skin when he burrowed and its hard to keep damp enough so its not dusty.
I'm currently using cypress mulch, but some of the pieces are too big for him, it looks like hes swimming in woodchips sometimes!
I just can't find any substrate that he can burrow in and that won't irritate his skin/eyes.
I was looking into orchard bark. If anyone uses that your input is appreciated.
Any other opinions are appreciated too!
