Reptiles require places to hide in their enclosure so that they feel secure in their environment, without hiding places many reptiles may refuse to feed or become stressed. It is recommended that there should be a minimum of 2 hides per enclosure one at the warm side and one at the cool side so that your pet reptile does not have to choose between feeling secure and being at their preferred temperature. Some reptile hides are designed to have damp moss or similar substrate placed inside them, this provides what is known as a shedding cave or shedding refuge, this is essential for some species to be able to shed their skin properly. The higher ambient humidity within the shedding cave facilitates the animal’s shedding process, an example of a reptile that requires a shedding cave would be a leopard gecko.
