The moss was dry and brittle when the product arrived. Setting it up in my terrium and misting, the moss cave hide became lush and vibrant again. The moss cave hide includes the metal hooks on either side of the cave enterance for you to hang. The metal chain was also included with the product to hang. I chose not to hang the product and set it up on the floor of my terrarium.
Initially, my gecko avoided the moss cave hide. With a little time, my gecko was more comfortable around the new thing in her terrarium and investiagted. After that she would regularly hide and curl up inside to sleep.
As expected the product started to decary after just a couple months of regular misting and useage and had to be thrown away. I will purchase the product again when redesigning and updating my terrarium.
The picture on the left is a small piece from the mossball cave that was taken with a complex microscope in my lab. The picture in the middle is a picture of a green artificial lay leaf taken with a complex microscope in my lab. The picture on the right is a real bryophyte taken with a complex microscope from a quick google search. It can clearly be seen that the real moss has cells. Oval-like shapes are clearly defined in the real moss picture. The two examples of synthetic plants has the same texture - no clearly defined cells and a outer layer that looks somewhat fuzzy.
The differences of these pictures show that the mossball cave leaves look the most similar to an artificial lay that I got at a party. It does NOT look like a microscope picture of a real moss leaf. This mossball cave is not just artificial dye being used, but also just not real moss. I would suggest that no one buys this to put into a vivarium with a real animal. I would have been devastated to find my pet snails dead by ingesting something possibly plastic. I would only use this in a terrarium (no animals) or as some sort of cute plant holder. I would not put this near any animals that might ingest it.
Since I could not find my last comment, here is my update: Its been several months now I have left this mossball cave on a bookshelf with no watering at all. This mossball cave is still green. There is no possible way moss would still hold a green color and stay spry/fresh without any water. I have moss, that I collected from a nearby park, that have gone brown or died even with watering inside of my regularly watered vivarium. This is just more support that this mossball cave is not made with real moss and this company needs to state that this product is all artificial. It is irresponsible for Amazon to allow this product to be sold and bought while pets are harmed or killed.
Chain is possibly too long, I didn't want to use pliers so I just cross crossed it under the ball. My tank is 18x18x24 and it can't be hung with a chain it's original length. Not a huge problem though!
I also am not entirely sure if crested should not be hanging out in damp areas all day though. So I'll need to get a coconut hide or something as well.
