Tips for temperature control and reptile safety The temperature of your herp's environment affects many aspects of his health. Keep an eye on the temperature of your herp's environment with a good thermometer, such as the Exo-Terra Liquid Crystal thermometer.
Tips for temperature
Temperatures in your home may vary five or more degrees between furnace cycles, or when air conditioning kicks in. Most herps require a significant difference between day and night temperatures. To accurately adjust these temperatures, even when you are not at home, we recommend use of programmable thermostats.
Install thermometers to monitor both cold and hot zones of the habitat.
Use an appropriately sized rheostat to manually control the temperature of basking lamps to keep them at a temperature appropriate for your herp.
Be very careful how you place your lights and heat sources. Iguanas especially are prone to lying too close, and can be burned as a result.
Install a smoke detector in any room where you are using heat generating devices.
Since natural temperature requirements vary widely from species to species, remember to research your pet's particular needs. You can successfully keep your herp happy and healthy with an informed eye, the right equipment, and a careful consideration of how environmental temperature changes affect your pet.
