    Not meant for ambient temps!

I secure it with foil tape on the edge to make sure it doesn't fall off. Please use a thermostat to regulate your ideal temp so your animal doesn't burn or overheat itself.

    Heaters failed causing terrarium to crack

    By kz95 on Sep 26, 2021

    This is the second Zoomed heater I ordered. The first one failed after only a few weeks of operation. About 2 months into using this one, it has also failed. Upon failing, the device significantly overheated causing my $500 vivarium to crack across the entire lower panel. Damage is not repairable. This is the second Zoomed heater I ordered.

Look for a more reliable brand like Exo-Terra. … more

    Cracked my tank- beware

    By on

    I put this pad under my tank last night for the first time. This morning I heard a loud cracking sound come from my snakes tank as I was drinking my coffee.. This under tank pad cracked my tank I just purchased brand new. Right where the pad is attached under the tank.

    Works Great For My Snails

    By on

    I bought this for my snail terrarium, and it works great! The only thing I would say is that I recommend you get a thermostat to control the temperature because even though it is a small heat mat, it gets very hot. I know some reptiles need to be kept warmer, but my snails need to stay in the mid-70s.

    Works great

    By on

    The only problem ive found with this is that the adhesive isnt the strongest, so i have to reconnect one corner every now and again, but it heats evenly and not too hot!!

    Perfect heat mat

    By on

    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.

    IT IS FINE.

    By on

    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.
