Zoo Med New Zealand Moss Decor is preferred over any other type of moss for terrarium use due to its unique softness and amazing moisture-holding ability. All natural Sphagnum Moss is the #1 preferred moss for all vivarium applications.
After other substrates have decomposed, the Zoo Med New Zealand Moss Decor remains usable and can be washed and reused several times. Naturally existing compounds within the moss prevent decomposition in humid environments. It holds more water and stays moist longer than any other type of moss!
Great for use with a wide variety of animal types, including: tree frogs, hermit crabs, dry geckos, arrow frogs, toads, invertebrates, newts, salamanders, and other miscellaneous frog species.
