Appropriate substrate is an important part of any reptile, amphibian, or invertebrate enclosure. The right substrate enhances the function of a naturalistic terrarium, regulating humidity, cushioning the animal's body, and providing a digging/burrowing medium.

Exo Terra Forest Bark is a substrate made from chips of Douglas Fir bark for temperature to tropical reptile species. By absorbing and slowly releasing moisture, this substrate helps maintain comfortable conditions, and the finely shredded bark makes for soft, burrowable bedding.

Although pine and cedar products are generally considered unsafe in the exotic pet hobby, fir has a much lower volatile oil content, especially after being kiln-dried. This makes it safe for use as a reptile substrate.

Instructions for Use:

Spread at least 2” of the bark on the terrarium floor. Water or mist the substrate according to the humidity level required.

Use an Exo Terra Hygrometer to monitor humidity levels. Spot clean the bedding on a daily basis, rinse the substrate in hot water for intermediate cleaning, and completely replace with new bedding every 8 weeks or when necessary.
