Exo Terra Mayan Rainforest Habitat Kit Lets Terrarium Hobbyists Bring The Rainforest To Their Reptiles

September 2, 2009

Mayan Kit
MANSFIELD, MA—Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. celebrates the magnificent and diverse ecology of Central America by introducing the Mayan Rainforest Habitat Kit. Continuing the successful line of Exo Terra Habitat Kits, the new kit combines everything needed to create a safe and healthy reptile habitat in a convenient all-in-one package.

Like its predecessors, the foundation of the Mayan Rainforest Habitat Kit is an Exo Terra Glass Terrarium and Compact Top, along with a thermometer, hygrometer, and water dish. Measuring 18” x 18” x 24,” the terrarium features front opening doors that make cleaning and maintenance simple, while protecting against escapes. The Exo Compact Top holds two fluorescent bulbs or low-wattage incandescent bulbs to create the ideal light for the terrarium’s inhabitants.

Made of the same black polystyrene as the Exo Terra Rock Background, the Mayan Rainforest Habitat Kit features a unique background with a design inspired by art found in Mayan temples. The Mayan Background adds a distinct decorative touch to the terrarium and a vertical space for climbing.

Other accessories simulate the lush soil and vegetation of Central America. Made from compressed coconut husk fiber, the Plantation Soil in the kit holds moisture to increase humidity and encourages burrowing. Plant accessories, such as the Large Jungle Fern and Jungle Vines, do more than just set the scene; they also provide the terrarium’s inhabitants with cover for a sense of security, as well as vertical space for climbing.

Included with every Mayan Rainforest Kit is a chance to win a spot on the upcoming Exo Terra Expedition into the jungles of Honduras. (Hobbyists can also enter the contest with no purchase on the website.) Every year, Exo Terra sponsors an expedition to document and research reptiles and amphibians in their native surroundings. Past Exo Terra Expeditions have paved the way to a better understanding of reptiles’ and amphibians’ unique needs and behaviors, and even discovered new species. The contest ends August 1st, so there’s still plenty of time to enter.
