Questions & Answers

I have a pleco in my aquarium and I was told he needs driftwood to supplement his diet. Do you know if this is the right wood for that?
Answer by ChewyJul 17, 2019
This decor is a hard African driftwood. It can be used inside an aquarium, but because there's a high amount of tannin in the wood we recommend soaking the decor in water for several days. Otherwise, your aquarium will turn into a brown-like color.

Can this be used for a leopard spotted gekko?
Answer by ChewyMay 11, 2019
This wood decor is suitable for reptiles including lizards, snakes, aquatic turtles, frogs and newts.

Can you specify what is the height rather than just giving the 3 dimensions and not indicating which number is the height, which is the length and which is the width...thanks
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2020
The dimensions are listed as length by width by height.

Will my crickets be able to crawl up in there and hide?
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2020
Crickets may be able to get into any gaps or crevasses that are present in the wood.

I have a bearded dragon, I ordered this and had it in her terrarium for a few weeks. One day she started to climb it, and as she came off the wood I noticed she was shaking her back foot. This wood is a soft material and her nail was caught and ripped off. Completely took her nail off. As she is a beardie this wont grow back. This item is listed suitable for a large number of reptiles but if your reptile has nails please avoid this at all costs.

Size no where close to what description states

Don’t expect a 12 inch piece! Two or the three of mine were barely 8 inches in length and roughly 4 inches in width whereas the third piece was roughly 13-14 inches in length, it is only 1 to less than an inch in width! It’s like a tiny stick! Wouldn’t recommend buying.

nice wood!

i ordered two pieces just in case they were not true to size, and i was surprised with two very accurately sized chunks of mopani. the piece i got somewhat resembles a fallen tree in a river bed, in turn, that is now the theme of the scape! i’ve ordered more plants based on just this cool chunk of wood!

Not as described

What I received what not even close to the dimensions described in the description. It is a flat log and not even 3 inches tall.

I have ordered 4 pieces of wood from here, and every single piece has caused mold to grow in my enclosures, which is likely lethal to my snakes. There was no notice about needing to treat the wood or that it’s not safe for reptiles, and it’s sickening to know you’re happy to kill my animals. I will be sending the vet bill for any problems they may have due to this. I am so angry this is deadly to my snakes.

Great unexpected hide

What I got was totally different then what was pictured. Naturally with wood that is to be expected but I was expecting kind of like a gnarled perch. What I got though was a very nice and solid hide kind of like those half logs but much fancier. It also can double as a basking spot too so I'm very pleasantly surprised.

not remotely close to size

i got my delivery a few days ago, but was just now able to open. the wood is nice but its maybe 6-7 inches long. kind of disappointed. i have a dwarf boa and wanted to spruce up his cage with something that branched off so he could climb a little more. the piece i got was just a stump. definitely recommend going in store for something like this. my cage is 36 inches long it covers maybe 1/4 of it at most.

Definitely not as pictured

it's a cute flat branch, but I bought it because of the photo hoping my snake would have something to branch - ha get it - out on, but all I got was a flat piece of wood that has nothing on it except a few holes. :/ better to get this one in store
