Terrarium mosses are important for shedding, hydration, and shelter. Moss increases tank humidity to make shedding a breeze. Furthermore, moss helps to retain and disperse water allowing animals to drink and stay hydrated. Many animals need layers of moss to hide under and provide camouflage from natural predators.
