CANOPY CAVE

Arboreal Nesting Cave

  • Secure hiding for reptiles and amphibians
  • Ideal for desert and rainforest setups

The Exo Terra Canopy Cave creates a multi-level habitat. Tree-dwelling reptiles and amphibians are often reluctant to use ground-level caves for hiding or nesting. A proper hiding area is an essential 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. Stressed reptiles are able to retreat in this elevated and secure hide-out, experiencing the opportunity to regain their strength.

When filled with Exo Terra’s Forest Moss, the Canopy Cave is extremely suitable as a moist nesting hide for tree dwelling reptiles and amphibians to deposit their eggs. A convenient clip-system allows you to remove the hide and check for your animals or their eggs without compromising their nesting behavior. A static-cling is included to cover the spyhole and darken the interior of the cave to provide more privacy to the residing animal in order to prevent stress. The spyhole allows you to check your animals or their eggs without disturbing them by simply detaching the upper 1/3 of the static cling, taking a peek, and than restoring the static cling in it’s original position.

 

Installation:

  1. Clean the surface of the terrarium glass.
  2. With the protective backing still intact, place the Self-adhesive Clip to determine its final position.
  3. Mark the position with a wax pencil or other marker.
  4. Remove the protective backing and carefully fit the Self-adhesive Clip within the marked area.
  5. Make sure the tape is pressed evenly against the terrarium glass and that no air bubbles are showing.
  6. Press the self-adhesive part firmly against the glass panel for at least 30 seconds
  7. Wait a few moments and make sure the tape is attached firmly to the terrarium before suspending the Canopy or Elevated product.
Stimulates Thermoregulation

STIMULATES HEAT REGULATION.

Good hiding places and visual barriers are an often underestimated and necessary feature when setting up a natural terrarium. If reptiles and amphibians do not feel sufficiently "invisible", they will easily develop stress which will negatively affect their activity pattern and reduce their appetite. The Exo Terra® Hides are decorative, provide shade and enlarge the 3-dimensional dwelling space. In addition to the decorative aspect of the Exo Terra® Hides, they also play an important role in the creation of a suitable, somewhat more humid microclimate in the terrarium.

TRUE TO NATURE.

Exo Terra® offers a wide variety of Hides that can be easily integrated into any type of terrarium. Their naturalistic design fits perfectly in desert or planted terrariums, and by simply adding moistened Exo Terra® Forest Moss or Sphagnum Moss, the hide provides an ideal egg-laying site for various species of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.

True to nature
Reduces stress

REDUCES STRESS.

The Exo Terra® Hides offer your reptiles, amphibians or invertebrates a secure place to hide and sleep, while the moist microclimate will support thermo-regulation, hydration, and aid the natural shedding process of reptiles. The Exo Terra® Hides provide a cool-humid place to hide which let your reptiles and amphibians experience an increased feeling of safety and reduced stress.
