ProRep Tortoise Life Mediterranean

ProRep Tortoise Life is part of the species-specific life series of substrates and has been created to meet the needs of tortoises originating from arid habitats, particularly Mediterranean and Russian tortoises. It is a blend of professional quality loam, soft sand and limestone grit that provides the ideal mix of texture and moisture retention, simulating the soils found in their natural habitats. The addition of pure limestone to the mix provides additional calcium if the substrate is to be eaten. It is also suitable for several species of lizards that originate from similar habitats.


Spread the substrate evenly over the base of the enclosure to a depth of at least 2" (5cm) for young animals and 6" (15cm) for more mature animals. Russian tortoises particularly may need a deeper substrate as they burrow extensively. Spot clean daily to remove soiled substrate and replace completely every 2-3 weeks. Area of the substrate can be sprayed to keep it lightly damp and so provide local humidity, but avoid making the substrate too wet.

ProRep substrates are designed to provide the very best environment for your reptile, amphibian or invertebrate. Sourced whenever possible from high quality sustainable sources and packaged in the UK.
