A pack of 15 Mangrove Leaves from a Mangrove Tree, a natural leaf litter product ideal for your bio active enclosures. These leaves can also be added to aquariums to lower pH levels and add tannins to the water. A necessity for many fish species, as well as some turtles such as Mata Mata.

The Ridgeway range of natural dried leaf litter leaves are sustainably harvested and perfect for recreating a natural forest floor in your terrarium. By combining them with other natural décor options, you can create a replica of nature in your home. Sold in a pack of 15, these leaves are completely safe for reptiles and toxin-free.

These leaves are suitable for creating humid microclimates within the enclosure, trapping humidity near the substrate encouraging custodians like isopods to thrive. In high humidity, or if soaked in water for an extended period of time leaves may degrade, though this will provide food for custodians in a bioactive enclosure as well. They can also be made wet and mulched down for millipede diet.

Dried leaves can be used as a substrate top layer to create a natural floor covering similar to that found in forests. Leaf litter acts as a layer for animals to burrow in, encouraging natural behaviours. The majority of reptiles and amphibians forage on the forest floor for food and water, adding leaf litter allows them to replicate natural behaviours.

ideal for tropical and temperate species of frogs, geckos, small snakes and lizards, as well as invertebrates; leaf litter gives your animals a natural visual barrier and provides hideout spots. It also adds nutrients to the substrate as well as food for springtails and isopods, both of which are crucial for a bioactive terrarium.
