Description

Zoo Med's Forest Floor Natural Cypress Mulch Reptile Bedding is a 100% natural cypress mulch substrate that gives your terrarium a natural "forest floor" look. It hasn’t been heat treated, which allows the mulch to quickly absorb and attain moisture to provide humidity in the enclosure. This natural substrate is great for snakes, amphibians or tropical species of tortoises.

Key Benefits
  • 100% natural cypress mulch substrate, great for live plants and egg incubation

    By on

    I have bought this for awhile... the last batch i just bought along with a NEW baby ball python... the last two weeks the new baby refused to eat... i had no idea why so i figured i would put in new substrate when i picked up his hide it was covered in wood mites! the substrate came infested! check all 5 of my other balls tanks to be sure it was the substrate and YUP all of them infested! I just spent the last 3 hours throwing every hide and substrate away, cleaning and spraying mite spray... now my snakes are sitting in their tanks with flowerpots and newspapers and glass and plastic bowls for water until i can afford to buy them all new hides (not made of wood) and try and find a non wood substrate I have bought this for awhile... the last batch i just bought along with a NEW baby ball python... the last two weeks the new baby refused to eat... i had no idea why so i figured i would put in new substrate when i picked up his hide it was covered in wood mites! the substrate came infested! check all 5 of my other balls tanks to be sure it was the substrate and YUP all of them infested!

    I got this for my Iguana's enclosure and I absolutely love it. It holds humidity and I highly recommend for reptiles who need humidity. I will definitely buy from Chewy again they are nice and understanding and the package comes quick.

  • This works great!

    By on

    This substrate has a nice moistness to it and is not splintery at all. I finally had the chance to remove the ugly sponge from my ball python's tank because this substrate kept the humidity at a perfect level. Unlike other substrates, this has a nice earthy smell to it that keeps my room from smelling like reptile. My ball python seems to be moving around more comfortably in her enclosure these days. Great deal for such a huge bag. Lasted me months!

    Clean cypress mix and holds moisture, but does not mildew.Also has a pleasant odor and the reptiles I use if for do very well. I just make sure they do well in a not so dry environment.
