Any reptile or amphibian should be provided with appropriate sized hiding places within its enclosure. Without places o hide reptiles and amphibians can become stressed and potentially stop eating or fall ill. The Exo Terra range of hides caters to reptiles from the very small up to relatively large (a 2kg Royal python can still fit under the largest size hide). Here’s what the manufacturer says about their product:
A proper hiding area is an often-underestimated feature of a natural terrarium. Without a safe spot to hide and sleep reptiles and amphibians will easily develop stress that will effect their activity and appetite. With a realistic pebble design and an enlarged hiding volume, the Exo Terra Reptile Cave mimics natural hiding places of reptiles and amphibians. The Exo Terra Reptile Cave provides shelter as well as offering a cooler and more humid microclimate in your terrarium.
Available in 4 sizes; small, medium, large, extra-large
