product highlights

It makes a great bedding for frogs, toads, dry-land newts, tortoises, Box Turtles and other terrestrial type turtles, forest-dwelling lizards and snakes (not desert species) and all types of invertebrates, including hermit crabs. This Zoo Med Eco Earth Loose Coconut Fiber Substrate can be used in terrariums with a variety of pets to create a naturalistic environment. When added in ample amounts, this substrate will let your toad, burrowing tortoise or terrestrial turtle create natural burrows or microclimates. Mist every day to create and maintain the humidity levels appropriate to your pet.
  • For use in terrariums with frogs, toads, dry-land newts, tortoises, Box Turtles and other terrestrial type turtles, forest-dwelling lizards and snakes (not desert species) and all types of invertebrates, including hermit crabs
  • Provides a natural terrarium type setup for reptiles, amphibians or invertebrates
  • Can be used damp for tropical species
  • Naturally absorbs and breaks down odor and waste product
  • Pour coconut fiber substrate into your burrowing tortoise's, terrestrial turtle's or toad's enclosure, up to 1-1/2 to 2 times the height of your pet to allow for burrowing, which is critical to the health of many humidity-loving reptiles and amphibians
  • Mist daily to achieve the desired humidity level in your enclosure; check a humidity gauge to confirm levels for the species you are keeping
  • Partially cover the top of your terrarium with glass to increase humidity levels
  • Spot clean as needed; if foul odor persists, remove all substrate and replace

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Leopard Geckos I got this and put it above the sand in my gecko's habitat. It's great for burrowing and digging. They love it. Maintenance is also very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Hermit Crabs- When Used Properly We use his for my hermit crab, Mr. Krabs, along ide with some sand. We have it so the right half is cocoa fiber and the left is sand. If you mist the fiber too much then it might start to mold, but that's unlikely because of this stuff's quality. It's a great fiber for other animals too, like a dumpy tree frog or anoles. In the classroom Mr. Krabs came from, the other animals were cared for very well, for example the dump tree frogs (First Toothless, then Garfield). The fiber worked great as a substrate for them, and it works well for my friend's anole.

How big is this bag? Will it fill a 10 gallon tank for 2 small/medium hermit crabs?

Asked by: Katt_jaxon
The bag has 2 gallons in it, so it should be able to fill a ten gallon tank.

Would this be a good option for a semi-aquatic snake?

Asked by: Jackie119
Yes you can. It mimics the dirt most would be on after emerging from the water anyway. It also holds  moisture phenomenally, so that will help maintain your humidity as well.
