Since reptiles and amphibians are cold-blooded creatures, they often rely on warm surfaces to help keep them warm. Exo Terra’s Ultra Thin Terrarium Substrate Heat Mat is a heater designed for your pet’s terrarium and mimics surfaces that are naturally heated by the sun to make your sidekick feel like he’s in his natural habitat. This mat is a great option for reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and planted terrariums. These mats provide 24-hours of even heat and can be used as a primary or secondary heat source. Whether you choose to mount it under your glass terrarium or on the side, your pet is going to love having the option to rest on a nice, warm surface!
Serves as a conductive heat source for amphibians, reptiles, arachnid and planted terrariums.
Helps your pet regulate his body temperature which is important for digestion, metabolism, appetite and activity.
Offers safe, even heat distribution and is suitable for all glass terrariums.
Mount it under the terrarium or on the side.
Can be used with an Exo Terra Thermostat and/or with other heat sources for species that require more heat.
This heat pad works well for heating and is very flat against glass, but once it is placed, you cannot remove it whatsoever. It is very difficult and every part you get off, leave all of the adhesive on the glass. If you want it off you will need a new tank unless you are ok with a giant splotchy spot.

I use these for my scorpion, leopard gecko and my young corn snake. They are amazing! They don’t get too hot and they definitely provide the necessary warmth. They’re super easy to use and so far, none have burned out! I definitely recommend them!
Works great, reasonable price

We have a 20 gallon tank for our leopard gecko, and this mat makes it toasty warm even in the cold winter months. I had to move it away from her water dish so it wouldn't evaporate too quickly, and I had to move her sleeping enclosure because it was so hot she wouldn't go inside! It's a great supplement to the heat lamp on top, which is fine by itself in summer but nowhere near enough to keep the tank warm in winter.

I bought this heat mat for my leopard gecko after her old one died. Much bigger than expected but a good thing! Stays warm and is consistent especially with it hooked up to a thermostat
