When properly executed, bioactive habitats are require much less maintenance and can provide added enrichment.

Of course, you need your shed, p**p, and mold eating microfauna. But more importantly, you need proper soil to support both flora and fauna.

Our bioactive soil is ready to go, simply add it onto your drainage layer, dump in your isopods, and get to planting!

Add some interest and curb appeal to your show displays with a handful of our terrarium moss!

The pop of natural color draws people in to check out your animals, and it gives your animals a little bit of security during the show. You can keep it dry or mist it for your animals that require humidity 🍃

This is an arboreal species that likes to web in the canopy, so that little piece of cork will serve as an anchor point for her.

The variable bush viper commands respect, both in it it’s sharp looks and serious venom.

An animal like this truly deserves nothing but a well articulated, enriching, natural habitat. @kingdomherps set out and did just that for this gorgeous viper.

One thing that is definitely genuine is our moss. No jokes about it, our products are made with only the real stuff.

Feeling like you never see your pet snake? It may seem counterintuitive, but the answer might be…you need more hides!

Providing multiple hides, burrowing spots, and wood to hide behind provides a sense of safety. Your snake may be more brave and willing to explore the habitat when they know there are plenty of places within reach for quick cover.

Fossorial and burrowing species will often still climb and explore branches and vines! Of course, we still recommend deep bedding. But the habitat doesn’t have to be a boring tank of deep substrate!

If you’re selling reptiles on the internet, quality sale photos play a key role.
Our mosses and mossy barks make for an instant DIY backdrop that looks natural and interesting without taking away from the animal.

@marksarkpetstore provides a great example of this with their adorable baby leopard geckos!

Do you ever feel like someone’s watching you and turn to see your crested gecko staring back from their tank?

When awake, crested geckos always seem to be curious about what’s happening around them, especially when they feel safe and secure.

One easy way to encourage your gecko to feel safe enough to explore is to provide plenty of foliage, hides, and climbing places.

How many of you have pet mice or rats now thanks to a refused feeder or, as is in many cases, accidentally getting attached before it was dinner time?

It’s a common occurrence for reptile owners, since many in the hobby are just animal lovers in general.

Your small animal habitats can be full of all of the fun stuff like our bark, branches, mosses, and jungle vines. Mice and rats will treat it like a jungle gym and it makes the tank or cage look natural and inviting 🪴

It’s @worldwildlifeday and we wanted to highlight some of the incredible species endemic to the archipelago we get our namesake from!

Like many islands, Galápagos has a variety of unique flora and fauna adapted perfectly to life there. It also leaves the inhabitants particularly vulnerable to habitat loss, plastic pollution, and poaching.

World Wildlife Day serves as day to honor and celebrate the wildlife we share our planet with, and to inspire humans to do their part to preserve and protect it.

Aside from donating to conservation efforts, there are many ways to help your native wildlife on a local level. These small things can make a big impact:
🌱Familiarize yourself with invasive plant species and remove them where possible
🌱Plant natives trees, shrubs, and flowers
🌱Take a walk along a local river or preserve and collect trash
🌱Eat local, in season produce
🌱Turn off exterior lighting on your home at night

Our moss hides are often seen hanging from canopies for arboreal species, but @reptile_warriors_education perfectly demonstrates how to use it with fossorial species- just bury it!

This half buried moss hide makes the perfect nook for Mushroom the Pac-Man to peer out of.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret:

That is not live moss in this terrarium.

Even though it looks live and blends in perfectly in this natural terrarium, our moss is actually dehydrated and fully pest free.

This means you can get the look of moss without fear of pests and without struggling to keep it alive. A win for you and a win for any vivarium inhabitants!

Shoutout to @miamidadeaquascaping for the incredible scape.

One of the most under-valued species in the hobby- the carpet chameleon!

These small chameleons have intricate patterns, and even the less colorful males have a lot of wow factor. “Furcifur lateralis” have tons of personality packed into their tiny bodies and make for extremely rewarding display animals. They benefit from having plenty of climbing opportunities and poles to make use of their canopy.

This beauty is over at @livingartbyfrankpayne, who has been a champion of this species for a very long time.

Grey-banded kingsnakes are an excellent choice for a display habitat. Their bold, curious nature lends them to exploring wood and stone fixtures, especially after dusk.

They also are a species that can be found sitting out to bask, allowing you to enjoy their striking looks.

This beauty was photographed lounging like a king by @predatorsreptilecenter

As an alternative to plastic hides, bowls, and decor, our terrarium accessories make a habitat look and feel natural!

Reptiles and amphibians thrive when provided experiences that would occur naturally to them- such as places to dig, hiding places, mosses, leaf litter, and varying substrates.

Though primarily burrowers, hognose snakes will come out and explore their habitats, especially given plenty of “clutter”- hides, wood, and textures to investigate.

Moss mushrooms look downright magical in a vivarium, but can also just be placed on their sides or propped up against walls to create surface areas for climbing and exploring.
