Leaves are from pesticide / herbicide free locations. Fully desiccated
Leaf litter is useful for dart frogs for hiding, preventing stress, and even egg-laying sites. It is useful for many other organisms as well, especially Isopods. These leaves are thinner than most commercially available leaf litter, and decay moderately quickly in a vivarium.
FrogDaddy leaf grades:
AAA - Pristine, High Quality Leaves. These are display tank / exhibit quality. They are always fully cleaned / sterilized and contain 0 breaks or imperfections pre-shipment. We rarely have these leaves available.
A - High quality leaves. Thick cuticle of these types are cleaned and sterilized. Thin cuticle are meticulously sorted for purity. These are the “standard” leaves we sell.
B - Leaves with imperfections, breaks, and minor debris. Thick cuticle leaves are still cleaned and sterilized. Thin cuticle leaves are sorted but contain higher amounts of debris than A - grade.
C - Leaves with some breaks and tears. Some have many imperfections. Thick cuticle leaves are not cleaned or sterilized; they are simply sorted. Thin cuticle leaves may be dirty, and are sorted but done so quickly and may contain large amounts of debris.
D - Leaves with many breaks and imperfections; the lowest grade. These leaves are harvested and shipped without regard to sorting or cleaning. We strongly recommend either only using these with invertebrates or boiling / cleaning yourself.
