    Awesome substrate

    By on

    My sons blue tongue skink absolutely loves this stuff!!! The bigger coconut husk particles are just what the doctor ordered, it keeps the smaller fine dirt like substrate from getting in between his scales and causing an infection! Provides great moisture retention and makes great material for him to burrow and make his hide !!! Definitely recommend this product for larger reptiles !!!

    Good and safe

    By on

    I hear this is the best for Ball Pythons because, even if they accidentally ingest it, it will not harm them.

    Best substrate

    By on

    Our red footed tortoise does best with this substrate. It is very clean, and holds humidity perfectly.

    Would not recomend for a really humidd enclosure

    By on

    This substrate has grown mold in my enclosure for my frog twice now, plus it seems to have a color on it, leaves a orange brown color if left in water for a short time.

    Covers a lot of area, surprisingly!

    By on

    Bringing the tortoises in for the winter is never pleasant for them so I wanted to make their bedding enjoyable at least. I ordered 10 bags thinking it would never be enough but their 5'X6' indoor enclosure only took 5 bags! The husk is on the softer side, which I liked, and oddly enough seems to clump their droppings like cat litter! I love this stuff!

    Mold grew in humid tank

    By on

    Mold grew in my frogs tank when i used this substrate for about a week and sprayed it down. Very upset, i figured this would be a good product, now i need to clean the whole cage out again.

    Better Than Coco Fiber

    By on

    I got this to use for my ball python. I had noticed that the coco fiber I was using was getting stuck in his mouth and heat pits. I have been using this substrate for a couple months now and it hasn't gotten in his mouth or heat pits at all. Plus, it doesn't get buried in the carpet. Also, if you end up buying a brick it isn't as much of a soggy mess. My gray tree frogs also love this!

    Great product!

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    I purchased this product for my juvenile ornate box turtle. I lined it his terrarium about 3 in deep with this product. He is loving it! He is able to burrow down very well in it, and I can mist it and it is holding some humidity in the enclosure. I'm very happy with it. The bag was a very good size for the price, and was more than enough for him.

    Great for Torts.

    By on

    I have outdoor tortoises. I have used coconut core in the past which does work good but it holds in the urine smell more so this works better
