The Habistat Heat Mat is made from the highest quality woven type mat which is now a well tried and consistently proven technology for providing heat to reptiles in many different applications. For many species of snake, nocturnal lizards, invertebrates and for all racking systems a heat mat is commonly the only source of heat needed when installed correctly and when the background heat of the room they are kept in is adequate.
Heat Mats do not warm the air or generate high temperature basking spots (use bulbs, ceramics or many other types of heater for this), but produce ultra long wave infra red heat which heats objects (and animals) that come into contact with the mat - don't expect your mat to get hot, rather produce a gentle heat for your pets to sit on top of.
