  • 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!

    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.

  • This is great, but..

    By on

    I love the smell and color of this bedding. It definitely makes my snake cages look better. However, i got this to help raise humidity and it is not very good at doing that.

  • Exactly what my hermit crabs wanted

    By on

    This is a good substrate for my hermit crabs, they like to bury themselves in it. I mix it with eco earth so they have different textures to experience.

  • 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

    Holds moisture! A little big for my tiny tortoise, but I have other reptiles that can use it.

  • Love this stuff

    By on

    I hope Chewy gets this stuff back in stock in the bigger bags. Its just the chips, as opposed to the compressed bricks that have a lot of smaller bits and dust. Very clean substrate and holds humidity well. Would highly recommend.

  • Does it's job very well

    By on

    Our hermit crab has perked up quite a bit thanks to the improvement in humidity provided by the coco husks. The price for the size is a huge bonus too since it did not take much to get the tank set up the way we wanted.
