Terrarium Hobbyists Can Welcome the Rainforests of Africa into their Homes with Exo Terra’s New Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit
MANSFIELD, Mass. – The ecology of subtropical Africa is rich and diverse, and nowhere is that more prevalent than in Cameroon, a country often described as “Africa in miniature,” because within the borders of this nation are all the major climates of the continent: coast, desert, mountains, savannah and rainforest. Inspired by the upcoming 2010 Exo Terra expedition to the rainforests of Cameroon, the Rolf C. Hagen Corp. is introducing the Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit, the newest member of its Habitat Kits collection.
The Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit is a self-contained environment designed in consultation with herpetologists from around the world that provides small species of snakes, frogs, geckos and lizards with surroundings as close to their natural habitats as possible. The Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit, like the other Habitat Kits in the Exo Terra line, is the result of extensive research, including field studies and observations in captivity.
The beautiful, African-inspired backdrop distinguishes the Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit from Exo Terra’s other Habitat Kits. The durable, molded background depicts the style of tribal art found in Africa, and has the appearance of ancient, exquisitely carved, well-weathered wood. Also in the kit is everything needed to give a new pet snake, gecko or lizard a great start, including a fully screened and ventilated glass terrarium, compact top lighting system, substrate, feeding dishes, hygrometer, thermometer, and decoration items including small and large Jungle Vines, a large Jungle Fern, a Standing Plant Spider Orchid and Jungle Plant Amapallo. An instruction manual for the installation process, decorating and maintenance of the habitat and a Cameroon Expedition poster are also included.
The Cameroon Rainforest Habitat Kit is 18” x 18” x 24” (45 x 45 x 60 cm). MSRP is approximately $229.99.

Because the many species of amphibians, reptiles and insects have different lighting requirements, a compact fluorescent bulb is not included. Exo Terra recommends its Repti Glo bulbs, which come in three types, for nocturnal, tropical and desert amphibians, reptiles and insects.
