Zoo Med Premium Repti Bark Natural Fir Reptile Bedding is all natural and made from the bark of fir trees. It’s the perfect substrate for humidity-loving reptiles like green iguanas due to its ability to absorb moisture and then release it into the terrarium. In addition, the smaller chips provide better moisture retention while preventing live food from hiding in your substrate. Naturally decorative Repti Bark provides your terrarium with a tropical rainforest look.

Key Benefits
  • 100% pure fir bark that's washable and re-useable, simply soak in hot water ever 2-3 months for fresh and clean bark
  • Smaller pieces help to prevent crickets from hiding in the substrate
  • The ideal substrate for Green Iguanas and any other humidity love reptiles as bark slowly releases moisture into the environment
  • Not heat treated so it gives the bark better moisture retention
  • Repti Bark helps to replicate your pet's natural tropical habitat and aids in shedding and respiratory functions, and is conducive to natural burrowing and digging

  • Always keep cage clean and provide proper ventilation. Nonmoving, stagnant water harbors gram-negative bacteria, which can lead to fungal and bacterial infection!

  • Messy eaters should be fed outside of cage, in special feeding area, or out of deeper or larger feeding dishes.

  • Be sure to use a humidity gauge in your terrarium.

  • Great bedding for my tortoises!

    By on

    I have tried different bedding for my large tortoise pen, but now I only buy Repti Bark. It is soft enough for the comfort of the tortoise, easy to clean up, and I can spray mist it with water for humidity without a bad smell. I love this product and it is perfect for other reptiles as well.

    Our Sulcata Tortoise, Sal Monella, loves this bedding. He burrows his little head in the chips. Stays fresh and retains moisture.

  • Great Substrate

    By on

    Maintains humidity well even under heat sources. My Herman's tortoise loves it to burrow in and stomp around on, large enough chips to not be eaten by mistake but small enough to not harm him.

  • Arrived early, tort loves it

    By on

    I've used this before. My tort definitely likes it better than coconut shavings, which are a little too finely-ground for him. Chewy shipped it soon, provided tracking (I think), and it got here quickly. Nothing to complain about.

  • Happily Surprised

    By on

    I'm not an expert on bedding products and was skeptical to use the bark since I had only used coconut fiber or other beddings that resemble dirt-like products. Daily I removed "dirt" from his water dish, but since I changed to bark, the frog does not track anything into his water to remove. Tank looks clean! I would recommend this product.
