CHOLLA CACTUS MEDIUM

Cholla Cactus Skeleton

  • Perfect Hide-out
  • Very natural look and feel
  • Copied from nature
  • Sustainable alternative to the real cactus

The cholla cactus is native to the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico – the Sonoran Desert. The cholla is a tree-like plant with one low-branching trunk that grows to heights of 4 m or 12 ft. They grow in thick bushes which form the perfect hide-out for many reptile species. Many species live around these bushes and seek refuge when threatened by predators, or simply to escape from the hot desert sun. Especially the skeleton is a great hiding spot for many reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates!

The Cholla is actually a protected species listed on CITES Appendix II which limits the trade of the real plant. The Exo Terra Cholla Skeleton offers the perfect sustainable alternative.

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.
