Today we thought we would cover one of the more unusual but increasingly popular uses of fake grass – for reptiles. Over the last year we have received a surprising number of enquiries from owners of snakes and lizards in search of some type of lining for their tanks, and this vivarium grass is perfect.
From what we understand, here are the reasons why fake grass works well in a vivarium:
Many reptiles like its strong green colour
Vivarium grass is easy to clean – unlike traditional carpeting (a popular alternative); a clean vivarium is important for the health of the reptile
Fake grass does not need replacing often – unlike newspaper (another popular alternative)
When you do need to replace the lining, it should not be often and will not expensive as there is only a small area involved
A quality fake grass product with a dense weave will be suitable for lining not just the vivariums floor but also the walls and back of it – areas where some reptiles like to climb and which will need to withstand their weight when climbing.
Our most popular product for use in vivariums has so far been Lifestyle® Multi Grass, a heavy duty fake grass with a 13mm pile height.
