As your reptile grows, the top can be removed and used as a rock heater! Available in two colors: Santa Fe Red or Quarry Stone Gray.

- 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).
|Q: Why use Rock Heaters?|
|A: In nature the sun beats down on rocks and pavement (roads) which hold heat. Many species of reptiles will take advantage of this heat during the day or early evening to help “heat-up” their digestive tract and facilitate food digestion. The Repticare® Rock Heater replicates this “heated stone” feature found in nature and is very useful for reptiles that eat large meals (ie: mice and rats) like Pythons, Boas, Monitor Lizards, Tegus, etc.|
