Exo Terra Stone Desert Substrate – Bahariya Black -11 lbs.


The Exo Terra Stone Desert Substrate – Bahariya Black is a substrate that is designed to mimic the natural soil found in arid regions such as deserts and savannahs. Instead of being purely sand-based, most desert soils are a combination of sand, decomposed granite, and clay, which leads to unique and sometimes colorful rock formations.

The Exo Terra Stone Desert Substrate aims to replicate this natural environment, allowing reptile owners to create their own desert or savannah landscapes in their enclosures. This substrate has two main features:


Cool-Humid Burrows: This refers to areas within the substrate where the humidity is slightly higher. Reptiles, like many animals, often seek out such areas to sleep or hide in. The higher humidity in these burrows can help reptiles absorb moisture through their skin, which can be important for their overall well-being.

Warmer Elevated Basking Areas: In the natural environment, reptiles often bask in the sun to regulate their body temperature. This substrate provides areas that mimic these natural basking spots. By having a range of temperature gradients, reptiles can choose the spot that suits their preferred temperature, aiding in their thermoregulation.


Overall, the Exo Terra Stone Desert Substrate – Bahariya Black is designed to not only provide an aesthetically pleasing landscape but also to support the behavioral and physiological needs of reptiles that originate from arid regions. It offers both the opportunity for moisture absorption and temperature regulation, which are important aspects of the health and well-being of desert-dwelling reptiles in captivity.
