Desert Heat Wave Medium Terrarium Substrate Heater
The Desert Substrate Heater simulates heated sand beds by the sun in deserts. The amount of hours a day and the strength of the sun in these regions can generate extreme hot surfaces. The substrate is dry and does not increase the air humidity as seen in rainforests or tropical areas. The power of the Heat Wave Desert substrate heater is designed to safely create these conditions in the terrarium. The Heat Wave Desert Substrate Heater should not be used without substrate in order to prevent reptiles from being burned. The efficiency of the Heat Wave Heater depends on the kind of substrate used and the thickness of the layer, as some substrates are more conductive than others. It is recommended to use the Heat Wave Desert Substrate Heater only for dry or desert terrariums with sand or gravel substrates for optimal results. Ultra thin and self-adhesive for under tank mounting. Measures approximately 10" x 11"; 16watts, 110volts. Rubber spacers included.
