Grade AAA dehydrated long fiber New Zealand sphagnum moss (S. cristatum) by Besgrow is of the highest quality, light brown/cream color with some green tips. This is Besgrow's 'Classic' length with 70% of fibers exceeding 4 inches.  150g expands to 3.2 US gallons when hydrated. Long fiber sphagnum moss is an ideal substrate for dart frogs. It holds a lot of water to maintain humidity while staying aerated and not soggy for months. Besgrow's New Zealand moss is the highest quality sphagnum available. It is void of sharp fibers and other debris, has exceptional durability, and is a beautiful golden brown. Compare this product to the Zoo Med version. It's is better quality at 1/2 the price! Given proper drainage via a layer of gravel underneath, this sphagnum moss will last for at least 4-6 months. It should be replaced when it becomes soggy and begins to beak down to maintain a healthy flooring for the frogs. Sphagnum is also an excellent substrate for growing orchids and other epiphytic plants.

Shipping & Returns

Shipping & Delivery
You are welcome to pick up orders in Hilltown, PA or at a show. Simply select pickup under shipping options. We ship orders anywhere in the contiguous United States.

Orders are typically shipped within 1-2 business days of receipt. The shipping we charge is what that carrier charges us. We recognize that this makes our shipping charges higher than other's, but we trust it is offset by the ubiquitous low prices of our products. We prefer not to role shipping costs into the prices of our products as that effects all customers regardless of their shipping needs.

Orders containing frogs and/or geckos must ship FedEx Priority Overnight. Other items should be ordered separately from frogs unless they can all fit inside a 6x6x2 inch space. 
Orders containing other live items can ship any USPS/UPS/FedEx service that will arrive the next 1-2 days to your location from 18951.  Feel free to use the lowest rate service meeting these requirements. We will send you an invoice for additional shipping charges if needed to meet these requirements.

Frogs/geckos ship Mon-Wed when the temperatures between 19440 and the destination are forecasted between 20F and 90F for the shipping duration.  Insects ship Mon-Thurs when the temperatures between 19440 and the destination are forecasted between 35F and 80F for the shipping duration.

Returns & Replacements
Your satisfaction is our top priority. We guarantee your full satisfaction with all orders as well as healthy arrival of frogs, geckos and other live items (insects, isopods, plants, etc) if ordered with required shipping times.

Replacement shipping is free up until the original order total. Because of the sensitivity of dart frogs to their environment, we cannot provide a blanket guarantee on their long-term health. However, we encourage you to contact us if you have any issues proximal to receipt. We take pride in our business ethics and in your satisfaction, and will stand behind our animals if there is no reason to suspect issues outside of our control.
