Reptiles and amphibians are cold-blooded and in their natural habitat they often use surfaces heated by the sun to warm up. The Exo Terra Substrate Heaters simulate these surfaces heated by the sun. Exo Terra’s Substrate Heaters are an ideal 24-hour primary or secondary heat source for tropical or temperate reptile and amphibian species and essential as a nighttime heat source for many desert species.
Creates temperature gradients.
Stimulates heat regulation.
The conductive heat supplied by both the Exo Terra® Heat Mats and Heat Cables will allow your reptiles to thermoregulate their body temperature to achieve the optimal temperature for enhanced activity and healthy digestion of their food items. The Infrared heat radiation penetrates via the skin and will aid cell growth, wound-healing, promote the immune system, protect against UV damage, and stimulate many other biological processes. The Exo Terra® Heat Mats and Heat Cables increase the ambient temperature and provide heat gradients for thermoregulation without disturbing the animals day and night cycle.
Creates Temperature Gradients.
Both the Exo Terra® Heat Mats and Heat Cables are the ideal conductive heat source for reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and planted terrariums. Their safe and even heat distribution is perfect to replicate surfaces heated by the sun, where your animals can soak up the heat, needed for thermoregulation. The Exo Terra® Heat Mats and Heat Cables are an ideal 24-hour primary or secondary heat source for tropical or temperate reptile and amphibian species and essential as a nighttime heat source for many desert species. The Exo Terra® Heat Mats and Heat Cables provide the heat directly where it is needed, making them highly energy efficient.
Stimulates Heat regulation.
The Exo Terra® Heat Cables allows you to provide heat right where it is most needed. These flexible, water resistant, and durable Heat Cables can be applied underneath a glass terrarium, but also inside hidden under rocks, or wrapped around wooden branches to create specific hot spots. The Exo Terra® Heat Cables can also be used in breeder racks to heat multiple enclosures.
