ive used it for my water dragon,and I was suprised on how strong it was if any thing compared to the lucky reptile ones I've used before these were thicker and a lot cleaner when it comes to the dust thrown off when cutting.In my opinion its a great buy cheap and available in a few lengths.

no mate I'm just about to look around for bark chips for my new bosc build,the only way i no for getting things like this cheap is to get a non reptile/animal brand its nice to see the word CANNY brings back memories ov cold winters at my aunt Nells in Gateshead (I'm Geordie born)

Right got my order today and found it had a, not sticky but some sort of residue on it. So I called the customer service number and they said it had what she thought some kind of latex coating on it.
She and the person she checked with had no idea if it was rep safe, as I had thought anyway.
So im asking if anyone thinks it would harm my reps and if anyone has used this exact one in the link.
Did you find it ok and safe, are your reps ok??

I had this exact same idea.... Perfect for wooden vids that you can staple it to, crap for glass ones as it doesn't silicone very well, also my day gecko can't stick to it as it is too fibrous

It's pretty safe too I reckon, the residue would more than likely just be the stuff that holds the fibres together. As for cheap orchid bark Surrey pet supplies do a 70l bag for about twenty quid

Well when you silicone it in use something heavy to weight each piece down as it dries, the coco can be a bit thin in places so I would double up on those areas
