Why use Reptichip?

Reptichip is made from the highest grade of chipped coconut husk available. Reptile and Amphibian keepers love Reptichip because it:
 
-retains humidity extremely well
-is not dusty or dirty
-absorbs odors
-is a soft substrate with no fear of impaction
-has the lowest sodium/mineral content available
-is easy to clean
-saves a tremendous amount of time cleaning
-has no parasites or bugs (no need to bake or freeze)
-is 100% natural, organic, renewable, and sustainable
 

How do I expand the block?

Easy! Check out our video here:
 

Will it mold?

Reptichip is mold resistant, however any wood based product will mold if left in standing water in an enclosed area. The key is to not over saturate the chip, and don’t store the expanded chip in an enclosed container. Check out our video to see how this is easily done.
 

Why not use cypress?

We ceased using cypress here due to the rampant destruction of wetland habitats. 68% of the US wetland habitat has been destroyed since 1970 due to the deforestation that occurs to produce cypress mulch. A cypress tree takes 40 years to grow to size. We moved to chipped coconut (of the absolute highest quality) which is a sustainable and renewable resource. Here are a few articles for those that are interested in learning more about wetland habitat destruction caused by the cypress logging industry:

What makes Reptichip the BEST?

-Testing: Nine months of experimentation of 9 different manufacturers and varieties of chipped coconut on our personal collection of over 1000 animals prior to bringing the coconut to market. The coconut was evaluated on several criteria (quality, consistency, and cleanliness, etc.) as well as the manufacturing process (Quality Control, packaging, delivery times, response time, etc.). The coconut and manufacturer that we have chosen have surpassed all other brands in our testing.

-Knowledge: Reptichip LLC was formed first and foremost by reptile people. JT Tomlinson of On the Ball Pythons formed this company from the ground up knowing that Reptichip is the absolute BEST product available for the majority of species commonly kept in the exotic animal hobby. We take pride in our knowledge base about coconut, and more specifically, how to use Reptichip with reptiles, amphibians, rodents, and other small mammals.

-Giving back: Reptichip continually donates to organizations and individuals that further the expansion of the reptile hobby and the enhance the protection of reptile keeper rights. In 2016, Reptichip has significantly contributed to USARKThe Texas Rattlesnake Festival, and private hobbyists who have lost their animal collections through tragedy or crisis. Reptichip additionally promotes fellow reptile and amphibian breeders who are up and coming in the industry through paid and unpaid advertising campaigns. 

What animals can Reptichip be used for?

Reptichip has proved to work extremely well for all commonly kept reptiles and amphibians, with the only exception being Bearded Dragons (you Beardie people just need to stick to tile).
 

How many tubs will one block of Reptichip cover?

Each block of Reptichip is 10.5 pounds and will make 7 x CB70/41 quart tubs of substrate (at an inch and a half thick).
 

What is your refund policy?

Unopened blocks can be returned to us within 10 days after receiving the item. Shipping and handling are non-refundable, and buyer pays the return shipping. Used Reptichip products may not be returned and are not subject to refund.
