I use cypress mulch for my indoor tortoise pens during the winter. The cypress mulch is inexpensive, can be misted if needed but drys out fairly quickly, is resiliant to decay and molding unlike hay or grass clippings, easy to spot clean and light weight, and provides burrowing opportunites and traction as well. The only downside is potential ingestion, so I put food on paper plates when feeding my torts in the winter pens. I put about four inches or so on the bottom of their pens and they have done well on it for a couple of years now when housed indoors.
