reptile heat Lamps, heating pads & reptile incubators
Shop Petco’s wide range of reptile heat lamps and accessories and ensure your pet stays at a healthy warm and toasty temperature. Before you even bring your pet home, you should have a proper environment ready for them. While room temperature may be fine for you, in most cases, it’ll be far too chilly for your pet. You’ll need at least one reptile heat lamp to maintain the overall temperature of your tank. Reptile heat lamps and pads provide your pet lizard or snake with the necessary climate they’ll need to thrive. Because reptiles cannot regulate their own body temperature, outfitting their aquarium with heat lamps and reptile heating pads is essential. If reptiles don’t have the optimum temperature, they could lose their appetite and become more susceptible to illnesses.
Some tropical reptiles will need special areas to mimic basking in the sun. In this case, you’ll need to provide a secondary source, such as an additional heat lamp or reptile heating pad. Most reptiles also need a place so they can cool down. This can be as simple as providing a shaded area away from the heat lamp.
If you wish to grow your brood, you’ll need to invest in reptile incubators. These devices aim to give eggs the optimum temperature and humidity they need to successfully hatch. Reptile incubators range from small ones meant for hobbyist to large and advanced ones meant for breeders. Researching the exact needs for your pet reptile and speaking with your vet will ensure that you have provided everything they need to keep their body temp up.
