Can this be used for ball pythons? I'm new to snake owning and trying to get things in order before purchasing my new snake. I read finer particles can get caught in their nostrils/pores...I want to have a few friendly live plants in with it.

is it safe for crested geckos?
Answer by ChewyFeb 22, 2021
This substrate would be safe for a crested gecko.

Does this soil get moldy?
Answer by ChewyDec 30, 2020
Any substrate has the potential to mold if it is kept moist and has very little air flow. We always recommend spot cleaning the substrate to remove debris and turning it over every couple days to get air into it.

Would this product be good for White Tree Frogs?
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2021
This soil is good for all types of frogs.

Great for burrowing!

This is my favorite soil for my tarantulas who like to burrow and make tunnels. It holds shape well and the tunnels don't collapse. This one maybe isn't the best at retaining moisture, so I use coco fiber instead for my pets who need the extra humidity.

I like using this for my Russian Tortoise (even tho he's not Russian) to burrow in.

Tarantula owner

This product is EXCELLENT for burrowing tarantulas and other types of inverts. My pets are really digging it. I mean that, it's light and not sharp at all, they can dig safely and not worry about a collapsed tunnel. I suggest you try it for yourself and see.

Great Soil for Box Turtles

This soil is great for Box turtles! It holds in the moisture and creates a more natural environment for my Boxies. I highly recommend this soil for anyone with tropical critters that need a moist environment to thrive! Other beddings such as coconut fiber tend to clump up in my boxies' shells and create problems that require attention, and this soil doesn't have the same tendency to do so. I am grateful for that!

Great new substrate!

After just rescuing a tortoise I started looking for appropriate substrates. This little guy particularly loves burrowing and so I looked for soil. I love that this isn't too humid. (no fogging on the glass) and he seems to enjoy it.

So far had no issues till last delivery apparently the soil had mites in it.

I have had great experience with this product. That is until last habitat cleaning. I clean my habitats very well and sanitize them. However two days after putting the purchased soil in I noticed tiny mites on the glass and all around the habitat. I used a reptile mite spray, unfortunately the mites have literally infestation in my 65 gallon habitat. My vet said to hold down the fort do what I can till I can do a major re-clean for my toad and tree frogs habitat. So now I have to get replacement bedding to go through the whole cleaning process again, and hope the pesky tiny white bugs go away. I guess I was lucky and just this time around one or more don't know which one of the three had this infested mess and once opened and put in the terrarium it multiplied.

Great Substrate

I use this stuff for my crested gecko, russian tortoise (I mix his with other substrates), and my American toad. It holds moisture pretty good, but not too much. You can easily add some kind of moss if you need to keep your habitat more humid. No complaints with this product

Good but..

I think the soil is nice but one thing I don’t like (which could just be me idk) the mulch has really small pieces which are like thorny .. they are super small. When I was planting plants in it for my terrarium I got little sticks in my fingers like rose bush thorns would.But other than that I have no complaints.

Dusty and dry

I use a mixture of coco fiber, coco husk and dirt for bedding. Now, I will only use Zoo Med ReptiSoil Reptile Soil in a pinch when I need it. I don't particularly like it. It's super dusty and doesn't hold water or absorb it well. I find dust on my reptiles, cage and lighting.
