Reptile Basking Platforms

Reptile basking platforms are a great addition to many reptile habitats. These platforms should be kept under a basking lamp to allow your reptile to be closer to the heat to help them regulate their temperature. Another key feature of these platforms is to provide an additional hiding spot for your reptile to feel safe and secure when they are not actively basking and still gain warmth.
