Top 2 Reptile Heating Mats around $10

Vipe Reptile Heating PadAs you know reptiles need warmth as well as amphibians and insects because they can’t produce their own body heat and rely on outside sources for warmth. With a reptile heating mat you create a specific spot in your pet‘s terrarium.

With a reptile heating mat you provide the proper temperature for your specific pet reptile, amphibian or insect. Know the heating requirements for your reptile friend in order to offer the right warmth.

You have several options about how to add warmth to your reptile‘s terrarium. Heating mats belong to so-called primary heating sources together with under tank heaters, nocturnal heat bulbs and heating lamps

What are the advantages of reptile heating mats? Reptiles need warmth as well as coolness. They need to be able to move freely from heating spots to cooler spots and back. With a heating mat you provide exactly that.

Vipe Reptile Heating PadMake in any case sure that you know the heat requirements of your reptile, amphibian or insect in order to get the right heating source and in order to create the right temperature. You know if your heating mat is too hot when your pet is avoiding the heating mat and staying in the cooler areas of the terrarium instead or even burrowing in his bedding material.

With an adjustable temperature controller you can dial the proper temperature for your pet reptile.

Vipe Reptile Heating PadReptile heating pads are not meant to be placed into water although they are all water-resistant. You push them under your dry bedding material and voilà! Your pet reptile has his resting place that stays comfortably warm.

Thanks to their low pricing you might even consider getting two or more heating mats if the terrarium is big enough and allows several heating pads to be placed. Always make sure that your reptile has both spots available: warm and cold.

This works perfect for my hermit crabs! We just needed a spot in the tank for them to go to stay warm. I tried it out and adjusted the temp on the pad until the hermit crabs wanted to stay on it. This has worked perfectly.

Works very well and my gecko loves it. It was a good replacement after one I had for years.

Arrived in perfect condition. I covered the mat with a fleece sock and put my rat’s cardboard house on top; it does not get hot, but puts out just enough warmth to comfort my rat in her old age.
