Habistat Heat mat, 11" x 11" - 12W
Heat Mats produce ultra long wavelength infra red heat. This wavelength is invisible to the human eye and is absorbed by furnishings in the cage rather than the air. This action is very similar to the sun and it has the ability to heat anything that it strikes but with the air temperature remaining much lower. Reptiles absorb this in a manner very similar to basking in a natural enviroment. Heat mats do get warm but provide a very gentle warmth which the animal can sit on top of. Used under normal conditions the mats cannot burn the animal.
