Market Guide: Heat Mats & Heating Pads
Here you will find the most widely used Heat Mats and Heating Pads in the market.This products have been tested and proven to be amongst the best in the reptile community,that is why the majority of reptile keepers prefer to use them.
(Note: All following products are to be placed on the outside of the enclosure either under your tank or at the sides Do not place them inside of your tank )
When you are purchasing a new heat pad you should be thinking of the enclosures dimensions you are going to use it on.Just make sure is the correct size to comfortably cover 1/3rd of your tanks bottom or up to half way.Covering the whole tanks bottom with a heat pad would just raise the temperature everywhere in the enclosure, so the animal might over heat and we do not want that to happen. Keep in mind that we aim to provide our animals some options to choose and thermo-regulate appropriately.
Tip: Many reptile keepers choose to get the larger heat pads from the beginning and just use the surface they need for a given tank.So they dont need to buy larger ones later when the animal gets bigger.
