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 for my box turtle

    My box turtle would get other bedding stuck in his shell. This works great. Lasts long, no smell. Easy to clean. You won't find this ANYWHERE else for this awesome price and I've looked. Thank you Chewy for caring for my pets so much easier.

    By on

    I have a 40 gallon glass tank & 24 qrts is perfect amount for it. Gives a desert-like feature to my tank & my sulcata tortoise enjoys digging & sleeping on it. Not to mention easy to clean-out from those turtle poop with use of a scooper.

  • Awesome odor reducer!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have always enjoyed using this product for my reptiles/arachnids. I usually mix it in with other substrates (either eco earth or cypress mulch) and it provides a superb environment that looks nice and natural. It works great for odor and is easy to clean/spot clean as needed. The only thing I have ever had issues with is the amount of dust this produces.

  • Repti Bark

    By on

    This bark is nice and light.. I use it for bedding of my baby box turtles then I scatter the bag in the adult box turtles outside area so they can burrow under it. Excellent in keeping the area dry.

  • Just what I was looking for

    By on

    I raise Adenium (Desert Roses) and so I mix my own soil blend. The Repti Bark mixes perfectly with my soil and coarse perlite to produce a medium that my plants adore. I know that this is probably an unusual review, as this is not what most people would use the bark for, but it works for me and if one looks, there are probably many uses that are not the norm. But it's a great product, whether used for reptiles or my Adenium. Thank you!
