Reptile Ceramic Heaters | Snake Heating

Filed under: Reptile Heating — admin @ 1:58 pm

Reptile ceramic heaters are great for replicating the heat of the sun and the success of maintaining a healthy reptile as a pet will depend, among other factors, on the heating you provide in the vivarium.

Why is heating necessary?

Most reptiles that people choose to keep as pets come from much warmer climates and they have no natural ectothermic system so are reliant on their environment to regulate body temperature. Warmth is not only good for reptile health but aids the process of digestion so we cannot stress enough the importance of making sure that the temperature of your vivarium is correct for the type of reptile you are keeping.

Variation in Temperature

It is necessary that reptiles have both cool areas and heated areas in vivariums. Food can be placed in the cool area and then you reptile will move to the heated area to bask and assist with its food digestion.

Average guidelines for temperatures of reptile vivariums are not less than 20 degrees centigrade for the cool area and not more than 32 degrees centigrade for the heated area. Although these guidelines can vary for certain species and it is always wise to check with us that the reptile heater you intend to purchase is suitable for your pet.

We stock and recommend Exo Terra appliances in the reptile ceramic heat range and they are all very affordable and renowned for efficiency. As always, if in doubt as to what you need call or email us; our advice is free.
