Description

Keep your reptile pal nice and warm with the Zoo Med Repticare Rock Heater. Made of a hydrated rock material that is twice as strong as cement or pumice, it’s ultra-durable and conducts more heat for your pals. Because the nichrome heater is completely encapsulated, it distributes heat evenly so there are never any hot spots. It’s designed to be used as a secondary heater to help reptiles digest food, and is perfect for many medium size species of snakes and lizards like pythons, boas, kingsnakes, rat snakes, gopher snakes, bearded dragons, monitor lizards, tegus and more. Plus, it’s cUL approved for safety so it’s safe to use at home and uses only 15 watts of power.

Instructions

1) For indoor use only. Do not use outside. Not for aquatic turtle tanks or very humid terrariums.

2) Place your Repticare Rock Heater in your terrarium. Never place a Repticare Rock Heater directly under a heat lamp or heat emitter. Never place a Repticare Rock Heater above an under-tank heater. Never place in close proximity to any primary heater.

3) Plug Repticare Rock Heater in. The heater will take several hours to hear up and should feel warm to touch (rock surface temperature between 90-100 F, 32-43 C). Generally, the surface of the Repticare Rock Heater will get between 10-20 F above the ambient terrarium temperature. Note: IF you are keeping your terrarium warm (95-105 F) then please unplug your Repticare Rock heater at these temperatures.

    not safe for animals.

    By on

    These rock heaters get way too hot and can burn your reptile. They can't really be regulated unless you have a thermostat probe touching the product directly. Just get either a heat mat or heat bulb.

    NOT RECOMMENDED

    By on

    This product is very bad for all reptiles and animals. It gets very hot and can cause serious burns on them. It doesn’t matter who told you to use this or if you haven’t experience anything bad, this product is a big NO. Please do not get it.

    Everything just a few clicks away

    I have a dog, three cats and a snake. I am also disabled so lifting big bags of animal food and getting it into the house is difficult. I never run out of pet food or supplies anymore. I order what I need and it is delivered to my door within two days. Chewy is GREAT!

    NOT WATERPROOF OR FOR ANY TURTLES

    By on

    Its NOT Waterproof. This is the only rock heater I found on this website and it isnt waterproof at all and its not for any species turtles, which, for me, makes it useless. I needed something for my turtle or something Waterproof for my lizzard and this was the only option. I spent the rest of my paycheck on this and can't even use it.

    Nice warm place to lay at night

    Our bearded dragon likes to sit on this rock at night when temps fall a bit. He also likes to sit on it during the day when we don't have it on.

    Doesn't Work

    By on

    I ordered a couple items spent 50 for the free shipping. Everything works except the heating rock. I checked the instructions to see if I was missing something but it seems as simple as only plug it in. I hope it was just a fluke and I get sent a good one but at the time being I wouldn't recommend.
