Exo Terra Cholla Cactus Skeleton, Medium
All reptiles need a small, dark space where they can feel securely hidden from potential predators. Providing multiple hiding places in your reptile's terrarium gives them options and allows them to thermoregulate as needed without unnecessary stress, increasing your reptile's mental and physical wellbeing. Plus, when you use natural-looking hides and caves like the Exo Terra Cholla Cactus Skeleton, you boost your terrarium's attractiveness as well!
The cholla cactus is native to the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico – the Sonoran Desert. The cholla is a tree-like plant with one low-branching trunk that grows to heights of 4 m or 12 ft. They grow in thick bushes which form the perfect hide-out for many reptile species. Many species live around these bushes and seek refuge when threatened by predators, or simply to escape from the hot desert sun. Cholla cactus skeletons make a great hiding spot for many reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates!
Cholla is actually a protected species listed on CITES Appendix II which limits the trade of the real plant. The Exo Terra Cholla Cactus Skeleton offers the perfect sustainable alternative.
