Hello everyone

This may seem like a stupid question, but here goes! I know that adult T's are quite fragile and am aware of the height (from ground to top of enclosure) rule. Would it not provide enough cushion for the T if it fell onto spaghnum moss (that soft, springy stuff)?

Once the moss settles and compresses, It's not as soft as you think. It's better to be safe than sorry !

yeah, that wouldnt be something I would risk, and there isnt a stupid question. The only thing stupid would be to not ask, do something and have your T get injured.

I use moss in alot of my setups........... I will actually mix peat and moss together, this allows things to stay more humid without really being more wet if that makes any since. Plus with a misting every now and then moss does not really get hard. I'd say go for it.
