Exo Terra Heat Mat – 4 Watt


The Exo Terra Heat Mat is designed to provide heat for reptiles and amphibians kept in terrariums. This heat mat is used to replicate the natural sun-warmed surfaces that these cold-blooded animals would seek out in their natural habitats. Here are some key points about the Exo Terra Heat Mat:


Usage: The Exo Terra Heat Mat is primarily used as a heat source for reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, and even planted terrariums. It is especially useful for maintaining appropriate temperatures for these animals, as temperature regulation is crucial for their metabolism, digestion, appetite, and overall activity.

Installation: The heat mat can be mounted both under and on the side of the terrarium, providing flexibility in its placement. This allows you to create temperature gradients within the terrarium, which is important for the animals to choose their preferred temperature zones.

Adhesion: The heat mat is designed to permanently adhere to the terrarium’s surface, ensuring optimal heat transfer. This feature helps to maintain consistent and even heat distribution across the terrarium.

Temperature Control: While the Exo Terra Heat Mat can work on its own, it is recommended to use it in conjunction with an Exo Terra Thermostat. This combination allows you to accurately control and regulate the temperature to create a suitable environment for your specific reptile or amphibian species.

Suitable Species: The heat mat is suitable for both tropical and temperate species of reptiles and amphibians. For desert species, it can serve as an essential nighttime heat source to prevent temperature drops that might occur during the night.

Safety: The Exo Terra Heat Mat is designed with safety in mind, ensuring even heat distribution without creating hot spots that could potentially harm the animals or damage the terrarium.

Heat Transfer: The conductive nature of the heat mat ensures efficient heat transfer, which helps maintain the desired temperature levels within the terrarium.

Glass Terrariums: The heat mat is specifically designed for use in glass terrariums, making it suitable for a wide range of enclosure setups.


In summary, the Exo Terra Heat Mat is a valuable tool for creating a suitable and controlled heat environment within terrariums for reptiles, amphibians, and other related species. It aids in replicating natural temperature gradients and helps these animals regulate their body temperature effectively. Remember to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for installation and use to ensure the well-being of your pets.
