Reptile Heat

Heat is a major factor in the health and well being of captive reptiles

Lighting is critical for captive reptiles. In nature, sunlight provides visible light, infrared (heat) and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Reptiles are cold-blooded or ectotherms. They are dependent on their environment to regulate their core body temperature. The ambient (air) temperature of the enclosure is very important to regulate the body temperataure and to prevent stress and disease.

Some activities such as digestion require higher spot temperatures. A raised heat source (such as a light or heat emmitter) which shines onto a ground surface such as a rock will best simulate the basking areas of many tropical species. They need warm temperatures under the stomach for digestion. However, they often use sensitivity sensors on their back to decide when basking-time is over. Read More > >
