When you’re on the hunt for tortoise substrate, you have a plethora of choices. So how do you narrow those choices down? First, find a company that cares as much about your reptiles as you do (hint: that’s us). As for the actual tortoise bedding material, maybe it’s time to ditch the same old, same old and get the tortoise substrate your pet will actually love; coconut substrate.

What Makes ReptiChip The Best Tortoise Bedding

We spent years trying to find a tortoise substrate that met our standards. When we weren’t able to find one that checked all our boxes, we got to work on developing our own.

That’s when we stumbled on coconut substrate as a potential solution. After testing and perfecting various coconut chip mixtures, ReptiChip was born. Here’s why ReptiChip is the perfect tortoise bedding:

  • It retains humidity, providing the ideal tortoise habitat
  • Coconut chips are easy to clean
  • ReptiChip is made using only the highest quality coconuts
  • Coconut chips have low potassium and sodium content, making them safe for your tortoise
  • ReptiChip is made using 100% organic coconuts

Why ReptiChip?

ReptiChip is made for reptile lovers, by reptile lovers. Unlike other reptile substrates, we never skimp on quality and use only fresh, high quality coconuts; never rebranded agricultural-grade products. 

ReptiChip supports fellow reptile breeders through the ReptiChip Distribution Network, and our reptile and tortoise substrates are only distributed through fellow reptile breeders that care as much about reptiles as you do.

ReptiChip walks the walk when it comes to supporting reptiles and their owners. A portion of our profits actively go toward supporting reptile health through organizations like USARK (United States Reptile Keepers Association), which lobbies for reptile enthusiasts’ rights.

And as a small company, ReptiChip prides itself on customer service. Should you ever have an issue with your tortoise substrate or any other ReptiChip products, you’ll be able to speak directly to the founder and owner of ReptiChip to make things right.

I never do reviews for anything but I have been so impressed with ReptiChip since I started using it a year ago . It comes compact and expands a crazy ton, holds humidity great and doesn't mold at all from my experience, really worth what you get for $30 maybe they give too much but hey I'll ...

This stuff is fantastic for maintaining humidity for my ball python. I foil taped the screen, have a large water bowl in the enclosure, and refill it every couple days. That’s all I have to do to maintain 65% humidity. Hydrating it was pretty straightforward, I used a big Rubbermaid bin, and ...

After much research on substrate for my ball python I decided on ReptiChip. So far, so good. It's holding the humidity at the proper level. I haven't noticed any color transferring onto my snake either which is great. The only downside to the product is when only having 1 snake it's hard ...

Ordered this to try in my BT skink's enclosure. It was easy to work with; I just sprayed it with a hose and waited for a while, gradually chipping pieces off with a shovel. It did take longer than 15 minutes to rehydrate; it was closer to 45 mins, but still not a ton of effort. It filled ...

I'm really digging this stuff. As a small time hobbiest/breeder, every penny counts. You want the best for your animals, without costing you an arm and a leg. We have tried many coco-based products over the years. ReptiChip was the first one we came across that wasn't a fine powder or didn't ...

I absolutely love this substrate. I use it in a 18x18x24" glass cage for my brazilian rainbow boa, and it's dense enough that it provides a solid floor, but it's loose enough that he can really dig in it, which he loves and does every day. When I first got it I thought it would be too scratchy ...

I've had terrible luck with trying different beddings for my snakes, and so many ordered both online and bought at stores in person have either been awful quality or housing mites. I read the reviews for this and decided to give it a try and extremely impressed! I have absolutely NO complaints, ...

I've tried different types of substrate and this is the best stuff I've come across. Holds humidity well. The size of this block covers A LOT! I filled two terrariums and still had plenty leftover. Super easy to get the block ready. There's a YouTube video on their website, but basically you ...
