I'm running low on cork bark after having built 5 arboreal adult T enclosures, so last week I decided to risk buying more bark online.

The best deal I found was $65 for ten pounds of cork bark, shipping included. It's a lot more bark than I expected, and much higher quality.

For reference, the big piece in the back is about two square feet. Each of the 4 tubes is over a foot long, and the Y-tube is even larger. There is enough here for at least ten enclosures, which is great. A single cork bark tube usually costs about $6 at a herp show (and they are usually only half as long), and the flats go for $10 or more.

Yeah cork bark is extremely light, I'm surprised it wasn't more to be honest....ROFL....great buy though, you'll have some awesome looking enclosures.

That's where I bought a load of cork bark several years ago! I still haven't used the big slabs, as my babies are growing as slowly as can be expected. :) I'm actually really stoked to see that shop stocking more types of wood now, because I have been looking for a good source of unusual woods for terrarium and gardening projects. Thanks!
