    Zoo Med ReptiTherm Under Tank Heater (U.T.H.), Mini

    Reptiles are ectothermic ("cold-blooded"), which means that they don't produce their own body heat. Instead, they depend on external heat sources like the Sun for the heat energy that their bodies need to function properly.

    The Zoo Med ReptiTherm Under Tank Heater is designed to mimic the radiant heating effect of surfaces that have been warmed by the Sun in nature. This device can be used as a primary or secondary heat source for terrestrial reptiles, particularly those that are active at night. 

    All of Zoo Med’s Under Tank Heaters are UL/cUL approved and contain a solid state nichrome heating element.

    Dimensions: 4" x 5"

    Wattage: 4w
