Description

The Repticare Rock Heater is designed to duplicate the natural basking process of all lizards and snakes. Simply put rock heater in terrarium and plug in. Heater will take approximately two to three hours to heat up and should feel warm to the touch. Rock surface temperature will be between 90 to 110 degrees (F). Without proper heat, all cold-blooded reptiles cannot properly digest their food and stand the risk of their meal rotting in the digestive tract, resulting in possible death. The Repticare Rock Heater corrects this situation by allowing the animal to heat up its digestive tract. Features full coverage, completely encapsulated heating element. The insulated nichrome wire element runs continuously back and forth throughout the heater, creating an even heat source with no hot spots. The element is water-resistant to prevent possible electric shock if heater gets wet. It's the only rock heater that uses a custom 100% hydrated rock material instead of cement or pumice. Hydrated rock is twice as strong and 10 times more expensive than ordinary cement or pumice (dry compression strength 10,000 psi).Ideal for all types of snakes and lizards including boas, pythons, rat snakes, king snakes, iguanas, monitors, and tegus.

I use this heat rock for my bearded dragon and she loves it whenever shes cold, she goes lays down on the rock and when shes warmed enough she moves into her shaded area, if your worried about light bulbs burning out, you should definitely have one of these in handy:)

I don't even know this is still being sold... It's not safe to use with any reptile. All heat sources need to be on a regulator to keep from getting to hot and it's impossible to do that with this. The only thing it's good for if you already own one- is to cut the cord off and use as decor. Your scaly friend will get burned with this :(

Please don't use this product for any reptiles, amphibians, or invertebrates. It is WIDELY accepted that heat rocks are not safe for use (regardless of the brand or model). I've seen so many people post on FB groups with pictures of their lizards/snakes/etc. with burns from sitting on these. Reptiles and inverts are attracted to heat, but cannot necessarily feel it when they begin to get a contact burn, which is what makes these so dangerous. I am baffled that this sort of product is still sold to unsuspecting pet owners.

Garbage product. Please don't use this product with any reptiles as it can burn your reptile or even kill them. This product cannot be controlled by a thermostat. I will never recommend this horrible product. Please remember to do your research before bringing home any animals.
