Questions & Answers

13 Customer Questions

Can this be submerged in an aquarium or does it need to stay dry?
Answer by ChewyApr 26, 2021
This Mossy Cave is ideal for reptiles and amphibians who dwell in woodland or forest settings.

Could this be used as a tarantula hide? Are there any wires exposed on the inside?
Answer by ChewyMay 28, 2021
Mossy cave make an excellent humidity hide for a variety of species. Tarantulas can use the moss hideouts if you are trying to maintain humidity in an enclosure. However, we do recommend measuring your pet before purchasing. This hideout does not have any exposed wires.

Would this work w/chameleon?
Answer by ChewyMar 09, 2022
A chameleon may use the hide, as long as it is mounted higher in the cage. Chameleons are mostly arboreal so they are unlikely to use it if placed on the ground.

Would a bearded dragon like this or be able to use this?
Answer by ChewyFeb 13, 2022

Hanging plant holder... Not quiet the same

This ended up being a metal framed hanging potted plant holder, covered in moss. Not what I imagined.

Metal Hazard

I bought this moss ball hide for my leopard gecko. The 4" size (versus the 6" that is also available) is a good size for an adult leopard gecko. I felt that the frame of the moss ball could have been built better -- there are small metal pieces that are twisted around the frame and stick out and they're very pointy. I used extra sphagnam moss to fill the ball and cover the edges, but it's still not covering all the pointy metal pieces and I think I'm just going to pitch it, it doesn't feel worth it to keep it in the cage and risk having my gecko injure herself.

4" Mossy cave humid hide

Wow! These look cool. They come with chains and hooks that are sturdy and nice looking, I bought two a few days ago, got them today and had to come buy another one or more, right away. You can mist these or leave them dry. Hang it or let it rest on the bottom. This smaller one is great for my crested geckos and I think my two year old corn snake could barely fit in it, but the younger ones would definitely fit. Love the look. It does "shed" a few small bits, moss is probably not the easiest to get to stick and behave. I am airing them out but I know my animals and they will LOVE this! I do recommend this!

Sturdy and looks nice

The frame is sturdy and comes with a thick hanging chain. The moss is a little crumbly but I figure I can add more in the future. It's a great addition for my hermit crabs and is a decent size for them to go inside or climb on.

Baby Beardies Love it!!

Bought the coconut and Moss hides for my baby Beardies. It was love at first sight! I think once I get them raised up they will love them even more! It took all of 2-3 minutes for them to climb in, over and around the hides...LOVE @ FIRST SIGHT!!!
