£14.50 up to 5 named samples
£2.00 / add-on specimen
STEP 1: pick some poo
Grab a fresh sample inside a freezer bag (or disposable glove)
Don't worry if a little hay or straw goes in the bag
Aim for a heaped tablespoon / palm of your hand size
Send the whole poo for a tortoise - don't worry if its small
Write the name of the animal or group on the bag
STEP 2: Double Bag
Wrap your sample bag(s) in kitchen roll - there should be enough to absorb any fluids that might leak
Stuff this bundle inside another zip-lock freezer bag
SUMMER STINK: please help improve the life of our lovely postman, his van often stinks with our samples! In warm weather keep samples to max 1 tablespoon size and ideally wrap everything inside a bin bag as well
STEP 3: envelope & post
Your postcode on back
'Exempt Animal Specimen'
Choose a good sized envelope or jiffy bag (A5 size works best)
Write your postcode on the back - that's how we know its your sample
Write: 'Exempt Animal Specimen' on the front
Address to: 'Tomtebo, Nickley Wood, Ashford TN26 1LZ'
Post: it will need a large letter stamp, big specimens will be a small parcel
