Rated 4 out of 5 by Honeybeep Sturdy, unique and easy to clean
This is by far one of my favorite hide products that that store carries. Sure the inside has some bubble blemishes but with an old t-shirt those aren't a problem for your reptile. It's wide opening and low profile make a great hiding spot for low to the ground and wide reptiles like bearded dragons. Mine loves to burrow into her t-shirt to curl up inside. Makes a good prop for wood pieces as well due to how sturdy it is.

by ResLover Cute :) Turtles like it
I got this for my Red Eared Slider, AT First he was terrified of it because he thought a bigger turtle was gonna pop out and eat him, but now he sits ontop of it, and catches the fish that pass by, also he likes to sleep in it when his heat lamp is on, and he wants to get away from the light, SUPER COOL :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by KD345 Bought Shell for Lizard
I bought this shell for my Uromastyx lizard as a cool place to hide. The moment I put it in his tank, he went wild. I have never seen him so excited. He was climbing on it, and jumping off, and hiding inside. It is a very large, heavy (concrete?) shell. He is a fully grown Uromastyx, and there is SO much room in the shell for him. Fits very well in his 40 gallon tank. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A2WB Very neat hide for snakes
I purchased this hide for my ball python Tambi a few days ago and, save for the occasional handling, she hasn't come out of it since! (A sign of contentedness as far as snakes are concerned.) It's amusing to see this giant tortoise shell with an itty bitty python face or tail poking out. Plus, the shell looks pretty by itself, and is a nice variation from the standard rock-looking hide.
Tambi herself is about three feet long, healthily plump and growing right now, and she seems to fill the hide exactly halfway--so it's on the roomy side for something like a ball python, who really like to box themselves in, but the extra space isn't so drastic as to stress her out and she'll grow into it soon enough. But I wouldn't recommend it for a snake much shorter than she is for that reason. At the same time, I'm not so sure that it's big enough for an adult beardie as the description claims; a half grown or small adult, maybe, but I think a dragon longer than 13-14 inches would have trouble turning around to get out. Not that beardies often go in hides anyway, so it could still make a nice basking spot. The shell is on the "cool" side of Tambi's vivarium so I can't say for sure how hot it gets under a heat bulb, but it feels like the same kind of creamic material most other hides are made from, so I don't think overheating would be an issue. Overall it's just a very fun piece!
