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.
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.
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.
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

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

This is a great mix in or top layer in a bioactive setup very coarse chip i prefer the zoomed products just because the value is better and we use alot of substrate. Will buy again this stuff is 3x the price in stores
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.
Does it's job very well

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.
Great Product for price
