    Perfect heat mat

    By Nikki844 on Apr 23, 2021

    It arrived faster than expected. I was very impressed with the way it was shipped. In a box so it wouldn't be bent or damaged. It works great. I haven't had any issues. Perfect for my leopard gecko. I have a thermostat for the heat mat, and it heats and maintains the temperature I need.

    I would not.

    By Lwils4542 on Mar 9, 2021

    This heat mat is pretty bad. it says it can heat up to 40g, however, I put it on a 20gL connected to a heat pad thermostat with the temp probe set 4 inches away so it auto shuts off if it gets too warm (which for my reptile is 90 degrees). My house is also at an almost constant 72 degrees. This heat mat has not gotten my warm side of the tank above 77 degrees EVER. even with the temp probe a mere 4 inches away. It covers the entire side of the tank. I had to add a heat lamp to finish the job. I would not purchase this heat mat again.

    IT IS FINE.

    By Damascus7 on Apr 17, 2021

    I bought this for my leo, it works great. The one thing is that the instructions were very convoluted. It takes 6-8 h to heat fully up and for you, all you might want to know at full temp it reaches is 95-100 degrees F.

    It doesn't get hot enough

    By Uprightpoem3 on Mar 16, 2021

    I'm quite new at reptiles and heard that using a thermostat with the heat mat would work so I tried it. I turned the thermostat to 85 degrees and after 4 hours of waiting it won't even get above 75 degrees and I have to rely on a heat lamp to get the tank at least to 80 degrees. This mat doesn't work

    bought for ball python

    By Bonanno on Feb 23, 2021

    We bought a 20g one for our new ball python and the mat heats up to 149° F there were no instructions and we were really scared as our snake can die so we called a friend and she ordered us a regulator in the mean time we’ve been monitoring the temperature and unplugging it once it reaches 90°

    Good product

    By balloumom on Mar 24, 2021

    We bought this heating mat to put against the wall in our coop for our tiny chicken. She is 1.5 lbs! We have had it for 2 years and she snuggles it every night!!

    doesn’t get desired heat

    By tegunamedboo on Dec 30, 2020

    I’m pretty sure I received a previously returned product. I received a bent mat with a dirty, tangled cord but shrugged it off and applied it to the bottom of my baby Tegu’s enclosure. This heat the enclosure about 10° more but didn’t seem to heat more, It took about 30 minutes to even heat to that. I’m not mad at the product but I will be ordering a couple more to side mount. It does it’s job but not very well.

    This will kill your snake.

    By Alex0 on Dec 4, 2020

    I bought this for the second time, (the first time was not with chewy) But I believe this is a manufacturers problem, as this heat mat does not heat to the temperature you need it to. In some areas of the heat mat it is 75 degrees Fahrenheit, while in others it is 87 degrees Fahrenheit. Making it impossible for a snake of any size to get the heat they need. Remember snakes should not be on their heat source at all times, they should be able to remain on their cool side for hours at a time, obviously this is subjective depending on species, but in general Snakes do not spend the majority of their time on their heat mat, unless it is not warm enough or they are sick.
