Welcome to The Bio Dude!
Repti Therm U.T.H. Under Tank Heaters are an ideal 24 hour primary or secondary heat source for tropical or temperature reptilian species. All of Zoo Med's Under Tank Heaters are UL/cUL approved (GS/TuV/CE in Europe) and contain a solid state nichrome heating element. These under tank heaters permanently adhere to your terrarium, forming a solid bond for optimum heat transfer. This pad is 8"x12"
These U.T.H are excellent for burrowing species that utilize the Terra Firma and Terra Sahara BioDude BioActive substrates. When utilized properly these create small heat pockets in the vivarium. When moisture is added into the substrate it creates a sauna pocket which is excellent for humidity loving reptiles. This aids in respiration, shedding and hydration.
Great for herps such as Ball Pythons, Leopard Geckos, Fire Skinks and many more! It is very important to check your temperature to be sure your animals do not need a secondary source of heat. DO NOT use these UTH if you are using the BioDudes HydroGrow as still water on the bottom of the tank can cause cracks.
