What are the best coconut fiber bedding for tortoise?

  • by

The best bedding for tortoise play an important role for the health and well-being of your pet. Choosing the right type of bedding will help reduce any concerns that you might have for tortoises. Coconut fiber is the bedding that I have been using for a while now and I would like to recommend.

My tortoise seemed to enjoy this bedding the most. This is because coconut fiber is affordable, all natural, soft and comfortable. Not only that, Coconut fiber also does a good job at control odors, retain heat and moisture better than other bedding as well.

#1 Zoo Med Eco Earth Loose Coconut Fiber Substrate

At the top of best coconut fiber bedding is Zoo Med Eco Earth. Zoo Med is a reliable well know brand for producing reptile products. This is an ideal bedding for more natural terrarium as it all natural and has been carefully removed from impurities. It is not only good for tortoise but also other reptiles.

It has the texture that soft enough to not hurt your pets and also allow them to burrow down into it. It maintains the good humidity levels for the cage. If you want to increase the humidity levels, you can soak this coconut fiber before placing it to the tank.

It is also eco friendly as before be used as a tortoise substrate, it can also be reused in gardens and filling for potted plants.

#2 Reptile Prime Coconut Fiber Bedding Substrate for reptiles, amphibians, or invertebrates

The second option is Reptile Prime Coconut Fiber Bedding. The bedding can be use damp or dry depending on your pet’s requirements. Due to that, it can do the great job for both desert or tropical reptiles.

It can be the good option if you want to increase or maintain the humidity levels within the tank as has great capability in retaining humidity. It also has the natural ability of absorbing and breaking down odors, which helps keep your tortoises terrarium is clean and hygienic.

Like other coconut fiber bedding, you can recycle it and use for potted plants.

#3 SunGrow 1.5 oz. Coconut Fiber, Comfortable Bedding

This is completely raw coconut fiber that is sterilized, what make it 100% safe and also edible for your tortoise. Althought this bedding is recommended for Small birds such as finches, canary and budgies for nesting, however you also can use it for tortoise bedding. The drawback is that it not good to retain humidity levels. But it will make the perfect soft and cozy home for your pet.

Its texture also allows your pets to burrow deep down to it.

It is free of mess and dust fiber, so it doesn’t have many particles, what makes it easier for your to clean the tank.

#4 Hamiledyi Reptile Carpet Natural Coconut Fiber Tortoise Carpet for Terrarium Liner

Unlike the previous products in this list, Hamiledyi Reptile Carpet is the coconut fiber liner. This carpet will create a natural look for the tortoise tank and also healthier for them than most options. The drawback is that this texture does not allow tortoise to burrow but it offer many other benefits for the terrarium.

The liner is much easier to clean than normal coconut fiber bedding form. It is also treated with a biodegradable enzyme to reduces odors. You just need to rolls out the plush carpet and cut it to the appreciate size with the tank.

What I like about the liner form is that it can be reused. Due to this it is an economic option as you can rinse it with cold tap water and air dry and reuse for multiple times. The coconut fiber carpet holds heat and retain moisture very well. It comes in a pack of two sheets, so you will have the backup carpet when the other one is washed.

#5  POPETPOP Reptile Carpet Coconut Fiber Reptiles Bedding Liner

This is another reptile carpet that measure 23.6″ x 15.7″ inches but it can be cut to the appreciate size with your tank. This carpet from POPETPOP is made of high quality coconut fiber and natural latex. It has the capacity of strong filterability and dust-free, what make it totally safe for tortoise.

Due to the raw material, it is edible and durable to not easy to deform. So you do not need to worry about digestion problem when using it. What I like most about this coconut fiber carpet is its breathability ability, what make it easy to clean as it just need to be washed under the clear water. And then the water easily passes through the coir fiber, so it is very quickly to dry. One more advantage is that it does not allow any bugs are existed on the carpet.
