ExoTerra Black Stone Desert


ExoTerra Black Stone Desert imitates the natural soil found in arid regions, like deserts or savannahs. Most desert soils are not purely sand-based but rather a combination of sand, decomposed granite and clay resulting in interesting and sometimes colorful rock formations.

This substrate allows you to create your own desert or savannah landscape, including cool-humid burrows as well as warmer elevated basking areas. The cool-humid burrows allow your reptiles to absorb the much needed moisture via their skin while sleeping or hiding, while the warmer elevated basking areas help your reptiles to thermoregulate by offering various important temperature gradients.

Key benefits:

– Natural desert soil, no added dyes or chemicals
– Ideal to create your own desert or savannah landscape
– Allows you to create outcrops, tunnels and burrows
– Stimulates natural digging and burrowing behavior
– Does not collapse once dry
– Excellent heat conductor

Available sizes: 5kg and 10 kg

Substrates in natural terrariums have many functions and are not only there for decoration purposes. They play a very important role in the determination of the terrarium’s micro-climate.
