Reptile Lighting, Reptile Heat Lamps and Terrarium Heat Pads for a Warm and Cozy Habitat
With origins stemming from places with warmer climates, such as Australia, Southeast Asia and South America, many reptiles require housing that is adequately equipped with reptile lighting fixtures as these fixtures the mimic warm environments they’re used to. As many reptiles are often seen basking beneath reptile heat lamps, these external heating devices are not only enjoyed by many reptiles, but are necessary for proper bodily functioning. Being coldblooded, reptiles need terrarium heat pads or heat lamps in addition to cool, shady areas within their habitats to allow for proper thermoregulation. As basking beneath reptile heat lamps aid in increasing reptile body temperatures and providing them with the energy that is needed to remain active and for digesting their food, ornaments, décor, water and substrate aid in cooling down reptiles for when they become too warm or hot. This is why using the right combination of reptile lighting and heating devices and décor within your reptile cages and habitats is so important to keeping your herps healthy and happy. Whether you opt for the various lighting fixtures and heat lamps available or you prefer special terrarium heat pads, provide your pet reptile with the temperature control necessary for sustaining optimal reptile health and well-being.

Available in four sizes, Zoo Med Repti-Therm UTH Under Tank Heaters have been designed to heat the ambient air within your terrarium, while there are Zilla Under Tank Reptile Heaters that are energy efficient and can be mounted either beneath or on the side of your terrarium.
