    Should I use sphagnum moss or rabbit hay for inside my leopards hide?

    Is this indoors or out? Is is damp or not?
    Hay gets moldy pretty quick and it also absorbs other liquids like pee and poop and gets nasty.
    I'd vote for the moss.

    Inside a hide, for sure sphagnum moss. Hay definitely gets wet, matted down, moldy, mildewy.....yucky.
