Smart Plant / Dart Frog Plant
The Exo Terra Dart Frog Bromelia is a very realistic bromelia as found in most frog habitats. The overlapping waxy leafs provide an ideal platform for the female frogs to deposit their eggs. The urn-like rosette retains water, used by the frogs as pools and to deposit their tadpoles, and is detachable for easy cleaning or for collecting the tadpoles.
Design based on the species Neoregelia tarapotoensis.

The Exo Terra® Bottom Plants contribute to the overall well-being of your animals. They provide environmental enrichment in the form of climbing objects, but also visual barriers for hiding and resting, stimulating their natural behaviors. The Exo Terra® Bottom Plants also create a larger 3-D surface, giving the animals much more room to play. By offering a more enriched environment and larger 3-D space, the activity levels of your animals will increase, making them fitter and more alert.
Good hiding places and visual barriers are an often underestimated and necessary feature when setting up a natural terrarium. If reptiles and amphibians do not feel sufficiently "invisible", they will easily develop stress which will negatively affect their activity pattern and reduce their appetite. The Exo Terra® Bottom Plants provide shade, enlarge the 3-dimensional dwelling space and create hiding spots and visual barriers which let your reptiles and amphibians experience an increased feeling of safety and reduced stress.
The Exo Terra® Bottom Plants are safe, hygienic, and easy to clean & maintain. Simply clean the Bottom Plants by rinsing with water when soiled. The non-toxic material used for the Exo Terra® Bottom Plants is sturdy, easy to clean and disinfect and allows you to create a a healthy & hygienic environment for your animals.
