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

    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.

  • This works great!

    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!

  • Fantastic price on the best reptile substrate out there.

    By on

    I have 15 reptiles in my collection that use this substrate, along with a number of arachnids and insects. Nothing holds humidity better or repels fungus better. Forest floor has it all over any kind of cocoa husks or other substrate I have tried, and I have tried almost all of them. And it's very economical in that it is easy to spot clean. Also, it is a soft bedding that is easy on reptiles and is not very likely to adhere to frozen thawed prey. Finally, my blood pythons, who especially love to dig and burrow, live for this stuff. It is very easy for them to move about and pretend they are sand worms under a nice fluffy soft bedding. I will order from Chewy's as long as they can maintain this I have 15 reptiles in my collection that use this substrate, along with a number of arachnids and insects.

  • Amazing! My Russian Tortoise loves it!

    By on

    I mixed Natural Cypress Mulch Substrate with Eco Earth Coconut Fiber Substrate and its absolutely wonderful, I prefer mixing because it's a lot easier for my Vincent to burrow, he's having so much fun! Both easy to clean, non sticky, doesn't get in his nose, I really suggest both of these from Chewy! Very great prices.
