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.
