Helpful Hints

  1. A rock heater's functions is to facilitate digestion. A rock heater should never be the sole source of heat unless the ambient air temperatures in your cage are sufficient for your type of reptile.
  2. Placing a rock heater directly under or over another heating source is not a good idea! This can cause rock surface temperatures to escalate!
  3. Always use a Rock Heater in wire type enclosures. Socks and nylons belong on your feet, not on your rock heater! Using these or similar items over your rock heater will encapsulate heat and can be a fire hazard!
  4. Ball Python warning: Practice extreme care when using a rock heater with ball pythons! Be sure to provide several hide boxes and check ambient temperatures.
