Terrarium and vivarium can house several species of plants and animals. To help these things grow healthy and strong, optimum environmental conditions should be met and maintained. One of these requirements is the temperature of the surroundings. The natural instincts of animals are to hibernate during winter and to develop during warmer seasons. In a terrarium, temperature can be controlled using specific tools such as an under tank heater (UTH).
Zoo Med ReptiTherm U.T.H. from Pet Store is a UL/CUL safety approved heater that is perfect for terrarium containing plants, reptiles and amphibians. It is economically manufactured, working from 4 to 24 watts. Because of the solid nichrome heating elements, the maximum wattage consumed is only at 24. Used in glass tanks, this heater can be easily assembled by attaching to an appropriate side and it will stay bonded permanently. It effectively distributes the heat throughout the tank so a consistent temperature is felt within the confinement of the terrarium. The package comes with an instruction manual so you won't feel lost when it is your first time using a UTH.
The Zoo Med ReptiTherm U.T.H. can be used in setups with temperate terrestrial reptiles including king snakes, rat snakes, geckos, small skinks, corn snakes and gopher snakes.
