Exo Terra Heating Rock - Large
About this deal
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. Maybe set the tank on end, bury it about 1/3 of the way, plumb an air inlet that runs down the outside, and have a chimney from the top? Pay attention: for the models without remote control you’ll need to purchase a separate control unit, otherwise you won’t be able to use your sauna heater. The Innova control unit set is with a user interface, power controller, temperature sensor, and cable connector. When I wake up in the middle of the night and the log has gotten cold, I'll just kick it out of the bag and zip back up again.
Once it's good and warm, I bring it to my tent and zip it into the bottom of my sleeping bag with me. Actually, I've probably used logs more often than rocks, simply because the area I've done the most camping in is sandy and without a lot of right-sized rocks available.Hot spots are not a problem with a completely encapsulated full coverage nichrome heating element that distributes heat evenly.
The Infrared heat radiation will aid cell growth, wound-healing, promote the immune system, protect against UV damage, and stimulate many other biological processes. If there are uninsulated stone / glass or similar surfaces in the walls or ceiling of the sauna, the heater will require more energy.
Zoo Meds Deluxe Repticare® Rock Heater features a rheostat control allowing you the ability to adjust the surface temperature. Likewise Cirrus, Cirrus Rock produces pleasant steam and fills sauna room with evenly distributed heat. Actually, I have a flannel-lined sleeping bag I use the most that's full of tears in the liner, because of too many nights of too many drinks at camp, then making a very poor selection of a knotty piece of jack pine to heat, then poking my legs into the branch stubs in throughout the night, then fighting (without much for wits about me) to get the snagged log out of the sleeping bag when the bag is warm and I'm sick of kicking sharp branch stubs.
A rock heater should never be the sole source of heat unless the ambient air temperatures in the cage are sufficient for your type of reptile. I was also curious if anyone has just tried bringing some large hot rocks into their tent in something like a pot to heat the air and whether that is worthwhile at all? As for the bottled water, I've had good success with that, even though the density isn't there, water is one of the best retainers of heat, which is why lakes can take so long to freeze in winter. Actually I got water to the verge of boiling, put it in a good hefty nalgene bottle, put that in a wool sock and put it down by my feet in my sleeping bag. This freestanding patio heater offers a simple and safe solution to keep you warm on your patio, decking or garden all year round.Back before firewood came by the truckload for a day's wages, there were probably some pretty efficient fire-keepers out there. The realistic and natural design of the Exo Terra® Heat Rock simulates a stone heated by the sun and integrates seamlessly in any type of terrarium.
