Q: Why use Rock Heaters?
A: In nature the sun beats down on rocks and pavement (roads) which hold heat. Many species of reptiles will take advantage of this heat during the day or early evening to help "heat-up" their digestive tract and facilitate food digestion. 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.
