In the wild, reptiles get their heat from a lot of sources. The most common is to just come out of its hiding place and bask in the sun to absorb ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays. This warming process is really crucial for reptiles because they are cold-blooded creatures. Unlike dogs, cats, mammals and birds that generate heat internally from biological processes, reptiles need outside heat for digestion and other crucial biological processes.
No heat equals death and it is that simple. Reptile heating is of significance. If you have a pet lizard or snake, it is important that you give them the proper heating in your terrarium. Most terrarium owners would use overhead heat lamps and light lamps to provide the needed heat. However, if you are looking for some heating accessory that not only provides heat but also distributes the heat upwards and downwards and also provides shelter for your pet, you should invest in Zoo Med Laboratories Repti-Care Heat Rock Cave from Pet Store.
This rock cave mimics a reptile's wild environment where they are living in piles of rocks that are heated by the sun so that they do not have to come out and bask. There is this ambient heat that remains trapped in their living quarters. If you want to replicate that same heating system, check out the Zoo Med Laboratories Repti-Care Heat Rock Cave today.
Designed to provide a secure, heated hiding place for all small lizards and snakes. The top of the cave is heated with elements projecting heat both upward and downward into the cave. As your reptile grows, the top can be removed and used as a rock heater! Available in two colors Santa Fe Red or Quarry Stone Gray.
