Zoo Med Cork & Forest Tile Backgrounds
Our best selling & favorite "drop in" vivarium background
Natural Forest & Cork Tile panels for terrarium/vivarium backgrounds. Panels are pre-cut to fit Zoo Meds Naturalistic Terrariums or can be cut for custom sizes. Perfect for high-humidity environments as they are highly resistant to mold or mildew. Use several panels for large enclosures. Four sizes available.
If you are considering the drop-in background route, these are our favorite type to use, and provide a more durable background solution for larger inhabitants than a Custom Background could. The difference between the cork tile & forest tile backgrounds is color & texture, with the cork tile having a thicker, lighter pattern than the forest tile. Both function identically, and are about 5/8"-3/4" thick. If you are working with a live vivarium, epiphytic plants will root to these backgrounds if the enclosures are humid & misted often. These backgrounds can be carefully cut-down to fit any enclosure size. For permanently installing these on an enclosure, we suggest resting the terrarium on it's back panel, adding a few lines of silicone where the background will go, and settling a book or two on top of the cork panel to ensure a tight-fit. Our new modular cork planters can easily be added to a cork tile background to add extra dimension, and a place to mount live or artificial plants.
