    What materials can be used for creating hanging, stringy roots for underside of dirt/ mud habitat.

    I purchased the roots from Van Dyke's but I think everyone carries them. Try Matuska, I know they have the green moss-covered branches I use in my fish mounts.

    Yes, more like under the dirt of the bobcat. The muddy stick looking Roots is what I'm after. I've even seen some that were more stringy.

    Burlap twine, Elmer's glue, rolled in soil. If you put some hot glue on the twine for thick and thin spots and lumps, then EG and soil.
    They will dry stiff so you can shape and dry.
