Can I use this in my ball pythons hide ?
Answer by ChewySep 28, 2017
This Substrate would not be recommended for use with a Ball Python. It is ideal for amphibians and wetland environment reptiles.

Can I use this for the floor of my Leopard Gecko terrarium?
Answer by ChewyApr 07, 2020
This moss is not recommended to use throughout the terrarium for a leopard gecko however, it can be used within a hide. Leopard geckos will need a humid/moist hide to help them when they begin to shed. The moist hide should be designed to be much higher in humidity than other hides. When leopard geckos begin to shed they need high amounts of humidity to prepare their skin to soften it so it sheds more easily.

Would this be safe for a crested gecko to use
Answer by ChewyMay 09, 2018
This substrate is ideal for amphibians and wetland environment reptiles and safe for frogs, salamanders and other burrowing or digging animals.

Amazingly happy

The fastest shipping ever, I received my order from chewy.com in less than 24 hours. I would definitely recommend that you give chewy.com a try for you first timers. Product is as described, and the price you can't beat. I found similar items in stores that were expensive but I found it cheaper on chewy.com thanks so much chewy for the great deal and for being such an easy company to deal with!!

Conveniently packaged moss.

I needed moss to help retain humidity in my anole terrarium, so got this. It does the job, and is clean and convenient. I was a little confused at first when I got this, as it says it's a 2 pack, but it was all wrapped in one packaging. There are indeed two separate bricks within, just not individually packaged. (Which I am totally fine with, due to less plastic waste. It just confused me at first, so I mention it in case someone else is confused. That way, maybe I can fix the confusion.)

Awesome, now listen!

It's brick of moss. All moisture has been taken out. Bathe the brick in water and you got great moss! It's not a bright color, but hello it isn't alive, so yeah it's not going to be bright green. It's not dusty, and if it is, you need to add more water. And to avoid mold, SQUEEZE OUT ALL EXCESS WATER. It shouldn't be soggy. I love this for my toads and frogs.

Mold issues

I’ve purchased it 3 times now. 2/3 times it has gotten moldy the day after hydration. Same kind of mold both times. I’d suspect that the moss at the factory is carrying spores. I most likely will not get this particular item again at least for a few years.

I'm half and half on this product..

At first I was like woah this is alot of moss..but then i was like it smells icky and made my geckos enclosure have this nasty musty smell which kinda sucks. But this stuff is great for shedding tropical geckos and holding in humidity so I guess im on the edge..try it for yourself!

Awesome moss topper substrate

I put this moss as a topper on coco substrate for my crested gecko to try and stop him from accidentally ingesting the substrate. It works great! Keeps the humidity in the tank high and does the job at helping him not ingest substrate. This package also comes with A LOT of moss, so you will be set for a while if you aren't using it as the base and as a topper instead.

Poor Quality Control

I had high hopes for this product- actually, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. I had reasonable standards for this product. I wasn’t expecting anything terrific, but I wanted what I asked for: 100% forest moss. I pulled apart some of the brick and was disappointed almost immediately. There were multiple hairs/fur fibers intertwined with the moss (of different textures and lengths but all light-colored). Stems of random plants are normally to be expected; no company is perfect. But whole sticks and stems from other random plants? Really? I guess I got what I paid for. There was even green plastic in there (which couldn’t have been from the packaging because there’s no green plastic on it).

5 star from my frog he loves it

there was more moss from this then i expected wow. my frog loves it and was perfect for the coming cold weather. half my tank is water and the other was rocks, so putting this over the top of rocks helps alot. keeps him from freezing and he can burrow into it. great price as well.

so far so my good

I definitely should’ve split the bricks in half, got way more than I actually needed haha but now that I know I will remember that. Good price, bought for my snails.
