100% natural substrate ideal for natural terrarium set-ups

Stimulates natural digging and burrowing behavior
Safe for frogs, salamanders and burrowing or digging animals
Spread a 1-2" layer of Exo Terra Coco Husk on the terrarium floor (up to 4" when used for burrowing animals or as planting soil). Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required and use an Exo Terra Hygrometer (#13367) to monitor the humidity level.
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!
Better Than Coco Fiber

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!

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.
I love this

This is the best bedding. I use it for almost all of my reptiles. Great moisture keeper.
Great for Torts.

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
This is great, but..

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

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.
Love this stuff

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.

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

I got tired of buying this from a pet store every month for three times the price. Fantastic quality, and super absorbent. I will never buy this anywhere else!!
