If you don’t like the idea of setting up several, reptile lighting on top of your terrarium, then you may want to try the Zoo Med Rock Heater from Pet Store, which allows you to place a heat source inside the glass case, without fear that it will hurt your pets. This is meant to serve as a sort of campfire that enables your cold-blooded friends to bask in the heat for the entire day. It is available in a free size, which can fit in any measurements of terrariums and vivariums.
What’s unique about this product is that it comes in the form of a large rock, allowing you to disguise it as a decoration, in case your pets negatively react to it. While it is not a sure-fire substitute for excellent reptile lighting that can penetrate through different thickness of atmosphere, this particular equipment can still be enjoyed as a source for basking. It emits the right amount of warmth to help your friends digest their food, but it’s not too hot that they will get hurt if they go near it.
The Zoo Med Rock Heater is definitely a stylish alternative to casual reptile lighting, and it is a product that your pets will enjoy seeing and feeling.
