Today we thought we would cover one of the more unusual but increasingly popular uses of fake grass – for reptiles. Over the last year we have received a surprising number of enquiries from owners of snakes and lizards in search of some type of lining for their tanks, and this vivarium grass is perfect. Have a look at our range of artificial grass for pets.
From what we understand, here are the reasons why fake grass works well in a vivarium:
  • Many reptiles like its strong green colour
  • Vivarium grass is easy to clean – unlike traditional carpeting (a popular alternative); a clean vivarium is important for the health of the reptile
  • Fake grass does not need replacing often – unlike newspaper (another popular alternative)
  • When you do need to replace the lining, it should not be often and will not expensive as there is only a small area involved
  • A quality fake grass product with a dense weave will be suitable for lining not just the vivariums floor but also the walls and back of it – areas where some reptiles like to climb and which will need to withstand their weight when climbing.

Our most suited product artificial grass for use in vivariums is Essential, a hard-wearing fake grass with a 20mm pile height.

Just in case you don’t believe what we’re saying, here is a completely independent web page all about caring for iguanas which mentions the benefits of fake grass:
