Exo Terra® Reptile Terrarium Background
not what i thought
I was looking for a terrarium background, and this is what came up when I searched. I thought it was a background that if I bought enough length, would flow together and look like one piece. Wrong. Each individual piece is a stand-alone unit. What I mean is, the pieces don't flow when you line them up together, so one side will be low and the next piece will be high and it doesn't look good at all. No clips or two-sided tape either.
From a distance, it looks really good but up close you can definitely tell it's fake. I have mixed feelings about it but am ultimately returning as I want something that looks uniform. This stuff, you can tell I've got blocks lined up.
Also, the box says it's a replacement background for a Exo Terra Glass Terrarium PT-2602. That is not very clear from the website's product description. One piece by itself would look nice though

Exo Terra Terrarium background
Bought the x-large Exo Terra Terrarium which came with a really nice rock looking background. I decided to cover the two side walls of the terrarium, so I ordered two smaller backgrounds and cut them to fit the sides. Now my terrarium has three walls that look like a continuous rock wall - it was so easy. When the over head lights are on, it looks really nice and I did not have to go to any trouble to get this look.

Adds great dimension and looks real!
This background looks amazing just like real rock and my Green Tree frogs love climbing/sleeping on it. I bought it for my Exo Terra 18"x18"x24" terrarium and it fits perfect without any gaps for even small crickets to get in. Cut outs in the back allow for wires or tubes to from top to bottom unseen.
The background is made for a black polystyrene so it can chip easily. It covers up well, but the rock "finish" though can wear with repeated cleaning.
It is only sold separately online but can be bought in store with a Exo Terra Rainforest or Desert kit. I would definitely recommend this product!

I have a leopard gecko and he is only small. In the petsmart store in North Carolina they have this but in a different pattern and it is much prettier. It is a dark brown and has fake green algea that looks really cool :). But this item has some cons that i will list
