Substrates in natural terrariums serve many functions and are not only there for decorative purposes. They play a very important role in the determination of the terrarium's microclimate. The Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates are ideal to create natural planted terrarium set-ups for humidity-loving reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates from tropical environments. The hygroscopic properties of the Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates regulate the terrarium’s relative humidity in a natural way by absorbing and slowly releasing moisture. Adequate relative humidity levels aid in shedding and help prevent respiratory infections.

Stimulates natural behavior.

The all natural Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates stimulate natural digging and burrowing behavior, and allow reptiles to shape firm nesting burrows similar to their shelters in nature. By slowly releasing moisture at night, the Exo Terra® Tropical Substrates stimulate the natural absorption of moisture by the reptile skin, so that dehydration in tropical animals is much less likely to occur. The unique size and shape of the particles discourage crickets to hide in the substrate.
