Exo Terra Moss Mat Terrarium Substrate 24" x 18" Medium (MFG# PT2484)
I bought the moss mat along with the 2pack of carpet. I lay the carpet down first. Which is great because it holds up so well and you can wash and dry it. Then I take the moss mat and cut it to how I want to play it on top of the carpet. I use it away from the food dish and feeding area and where the sleeping and heat emitter is. My Russian tortoise loves it because its super soft. However if u do cut it and place it over carpet instead of just using the moss mat then make sure u use rocks or whatever inside your tank to hold it down because my lil guy loves to go under it and play around :) the moss matt is also washable and I have washed mine a couple times already. So much better than sand, peat moss, wood chips, ect. They dont eat it and have the chance to get their bellys impacted.

I was pretty excited to try this out since I cannot use ordinary reptile carpet with high humidity animals since it mildews. It's been everything I have hoped for. Retains moisture, keeps the enclosure smelling fresh, absorbs waste or I can pick up feces right after being produced with a wipe, I can wash it on gentle in the washing machine, soft texture, nice green color, my Chinese water dragons do not snag their claws in it, and I only had to get three to cover the floor of a 60"Lx18"W aquarium! It's even heavy enough that they cannot flip it! My dragons love it so much that they will spread out their limbs and go to sleep! Thank you for carrying this product!

I will start by saying that my interactions w/ Drs. Foster and Smith were wonderful & I had a pleasant shopping experience. However, the product is completely horrible. It appears as if they gathered a bunch of trash from a fabric company, dyed it green, & then glued it to a piece of green plastic. Half of it fell off when I rinsed it off. I found pieces of cardboard & plastic glued to the bottom as well. I spent the $, so I decided to give it a try. I put it in a terrarium w/ a Whites Tree Frog. When he dove for a cricket, he got some of the fabric in his mouth. We immediately took the mat out & tossed it in the garbage. I cannot stress enough how horrible this product is. DON'T BUY IT!!!!!
