Zoo Meds Repticare® Rock Heaters are made of a hydrated rock material that is twice as strong as cement or pumice, resulting in excellent conductivity and increased product longevity. Hot spots are not a problem with a completely encapsulated full coverage nichrome heating element that distributes heat evenly. Zoo Meds Deluxe ReptiCare® Rock Heater features a rheostat control allowing you the ability to adjust the surface temperature.
- A rock heaters function is to facilitate digestion.
- A rock heater should never be the sole source of heat.
- Never cover or bury the rock heater with anything.
- If your reptile never leaves the rock heater then your terrarium is too cold and you need an additional heat source. (i.e. Ceramic Heat Emitter or ReptiTherm® UTH Heater).
Zoo Med rock heaters are cUL/CSA/T1/2V approved.
