Amphibians and reptiles live truly in the wild - swamps, lakes, rivers, and other moist and mossy areas that are truly a far cry from a glass or acrylic terrarium. If you have pet reptiles and amphibians, the biggest challenge for you is to make their living conditions similar to where they came from. How are you going to do that with a plain terrarium?
You can start with something simple and easy, like moss. No, you don't need to go to the nearest swamp and collect moss to put in the terrarium. That's not a practical solution if you live in the heart of the city. Lucky for you, the Zoo Med Laboratories New Zealand Sphagnum Moss from Pet Store is available in the market. Each packet of this product contains real sphagnum moss that can hold water and moisture in for a longer period of time compared to other kinds of moss. The natural compounds found in this type of moss inhibit it from decomposing even in hot and humid temperatures, so you can be assured that this moss is long-lasting.
The Zoo Med Laboratories New Zealand Sphagnum Moss, aside form being functional, is also aesthetically pleasing. It gives terrariums a more natural look that your pets will love to live in and that you will love to look at.
