Hemp bedding is a soft, fibrous substrate that is suitable for many species of tortoise, snakes, and mammals. It is highly absorbent, dust free and odourless as well as being 100% natural and biodegradable. To use simply sprinkle over the bottom of the housing unit to the depth required. Spot-clean daily and completely replace every two or three weeks or more frequently if it becomes heavily soiled or wet. If you are using an under-tank heat mat, do not use a thick layer of hemp. Please refer to the heat mat manufacturer’s instructions for more information.
