Zoo Med Eco Carpet™ 10gal Green
Your reptile's substrate is one of the essential parts of their home. It is what they will live on for the majority of their time, so you must use a substrate that will be beneficial to their health. Reptile carpet is a great option; here are the key benefits of using it:
- Easy to clean and maintain - It is advised to have at least two carpets at all times, one for the terrarium and one that is clean to spare. Follow the instructions for cleaning.
- No loose particles - Being a non-particulate substrate means that you won't have to worry about your pet ingesting their substrate and the risks associated with that.
- Simple to install - Just lay it flat on the bottom of the terrarium. It can be cut to size if necessary.
Zoo Med Eco Carpet™ is a soft, absorbent, non-abrasive carpet for many species of snakes, lizards, tortoises, and insects. Better than non-absorbent Astro-turf type carpets, which are made of plastic. Great for use as a protective layer when using the ReptiTherm® U.T.H. and loose substrates.
- Washable and easy to clean.
- Safe: Cannot be accidentally ingested by your animals.
- Carpet made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
- Eco Carpet was previously known as Repti Cage Carpet.

Q. How many sheets come in a box?
A. One sheet per box.
Q. Can this be used in conjunction with a heat mat?
A. While this can be used with a heat mat, it is recommended to check the manufacturer's instructions for the heat mat to see if it can be covered. Zoo Med does suggest that this can be used with a U.T.H. when the U.T.H. is placed under the tank to help prevent burns to the animal.
Q. Can this be cut with scissors?
A. Yes, you can cut this carpet to size using scissors if necessary.
