This is 100% all-natural high grade cork bark. Cork bark is a wonderful decoration because you can easily cut a piece to any length or shape and because it can be used in many different ways.
Affixing it so that pieces overlap will create nooks and crannies that allow your reptile or amphibian to climb and therefore provide more living space. Attaching it like a shelf will provide additional basking areas and the ability for your animal to more easily thermoregulate. Moistening the bark helps maintain a constant humidity in your reptile's enclosure.
The naturalistic appearance of cork bark adds incredibly to the overall natural look of a terrarium. Cork bark can easily accommodate plants and you can even shape it into planters or attach plants directly to it.
Cork Bark is easy to work with because it can be attached to glass or wood terrariums with silicone and in wood vivariums, the cork can be attached with screws. Place a drop of silicone on the head of the screws to prevent them from rusting. Of course, one of the most popular uses of cork bark is to create hideouts for your reptile by terracing several pieces together. Cork bark is easily cut so you can always adjust the piece's size to suit your needs.
Cork bark can be used with fully aquatic or semi aquatic species as floating cork bark recreates a land section in their enclosure. They also provide a platform for prey items and allows your aquatic creature an easier feeding surface. Frogs will not hesitate to grab crickets that are resting on the bark. Of course, the addition of floating plants works well with cork bark.Sizes:
