As cold-blooded animals, reptiles rely on their environment to regulate their own body heat. Thus, if their surroundings are cold, they feel colder than their warm-blooded friends such as mammals. And since most reptiles live in warmer climate, it goes without saying that they will really feel cold in the winter.
Just imagine what it is like for domesticated pet reptiles living in your home in the dead of winter. These animals will surely suffer from the cold... but not if you're using the Zoo Med Ceramic Heat Emitter from Pet Store
. This small heater can raise the temperature of your terrarium anywhere between 10 to 20 degrees Fahrenheit above the room temperature outside. If you're taking care of tropical reptiles or desert reptiles
, those animals will surely welcome the heat.
The Zoo Med Ceramic Heat Emitter produces heat but not light. Thus, this heater will not disrupt any lighting systems your terrarium may have. Also, because it produces just heat, it isn't eating up a lot of power consumption, unlike other heaters that use up energy for both light and heat. It lasts for quite a while, too, for as long as five years. Given its average life of 25,000 hours, you can be sure that this heater is a great investment.
