    [​IMG] I use it sometimes mine loved it when I first put it in their tank. [​IMG] then after awhile only a few climbed on it. [​IMG] Now when I clean the tank every week i move stuff around and every few cleanings I put it in for the week. That way it's like a new toy to them when it's in and sure enough the first couple days it's in most of them climb up it. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]We have a little reptile store that carries it in 12 x 12 sheets. Other than that I'm not sure but would love to where else cuz the pet stores usually cost more. [​IMG]

    I think the black jungle site had that too...I'll have to go back and look. I think they had some listed as cork tiles.

    They are listed as cork panels...is that what you have Supermom?

    [​IMG]Hermies love natural cork bark, if ya do get some try to get the non compresed type like in the link to Blackjungle that i had posted under the moss thread, also they not only like to climb on it but eat at it as well, what ya can do is make sure to wash it real well and try to bake it till dry, once ya know your hermies like it you can also spray it once in awhile with your salt water mix and they really go crazy for that..

    Just got my order from black jungle! LOVE the cork tubes! I bought two and they are huge! 12 inches long and the one is big enough for my large hermies to go inside the other is big enough for my jumbos to get in! They were 6.99 each and then they also offer 10% off on your first order! See site for details.

    I also got the virgin cork plaque 3 (4"x12") pieces. Each piece is cut straight so that you can piece them together to form an incredible climbing wall! The backs are flat-so you can stick them right to the tank wall with sealant.

    I just wanted to update and tell everyone what a success the cork bark tunnels have been with my hermies.

    I have constructed a "tunnel system" underneath the substrate for them and they love it. Plus it adds more surface area for them to walk on. I am going to get some pics posted in the next few days.
