Exo Terra®’s realistic Coconut Hide & Water Dish fits the Hawaiian Tiki theme. The ornament ensures that your animals have a secure hiding place, and that clean and fresh water is always accessible in the adjacent water dish. The water dish is easy to clean and the smooth non-porous surface will not absorb harmful bacteria. A proper hiding area is an essential feature of a natural terrarium. Without a safe spot to hide and sleep reptiles and amphibians will easily develop stress that will affect their activity and appetite. By adding Exo Terra’s Forest Moss you can create a slightly moist microclimate, ideal for reptiles and amphibians to soak up moisture via their skin as well as to deposit their eggs.

A proper hiding area is an essential feature of a natural terrarium. Without a safe spot to hide and sleep reptiles and amphibians will easily develop stress that will affect their activity and appetite. In nature, dart frogs use all kinds of refuge to hide or lay their eggs; leaves, nut pods, coconut halves, hollow bamboo, decaying logs, etc. Unlike these natural hide-outs or egg-laying sites, like nut pods and coconut halves, the Coconut Cave will not deteriorate or rot and can be used over many years. The Exo Terra® Coconut Cave has the perfect dimensions for most poison dart frogs and due to the smooth surface of the bottom dish, dart frogs will readily accept the Coconut Cave as a breeding and egg-laying site. By placing the Coconut Cave slightly tilted, the water will be sloping to one side of the bottom dish, which is a requirement for various dart frog species to deposit their eggs. Additionally, the smooth surface of the bottom dish allows for an easy extraction of the eggs and for a thorough cleaning afterwards. Furthermore, since the Coconut top can be easily removed without disturbing the eggs, it is ideal to monitor the eggs.
When used as a hideout for reptiles, add Exo Terra’s Forest Moss to create a slightly moist microclimate, ideal for reptiles to soak up moisture via their skin as well as to deposit their eggs.
