Zoo Med Snake Strip U.T.H. (Under Tank Heater)


We apologize for the inconvenience, but our website will be shut down until Friday due to an increase in order issues and delays. We are doing our best to get orders out within 1-2 business days, but unfortunately we are now delayed by up to 3-5 days. To minimize the amount of negative reviews and experiences, we have had to make the tough decision of closing until Friday the 27th. At that time we will again be processing orders within 1-3 days until we shut down on December 14th. We sincerely apologize, and we hope to come into 2021 as strong as ever! ❤️

Reptiles are ectothermic ("cold-blooded"), which means that they don't produce their own body heat. Instead, they depend on external heat sources like the Sun for the heat energy that their bodies need to function properly.

The Zoo Med Snake Strip U.T.H. is designed to mimic the radiant heating effect of surfaces that have been warmed by the Sun in nature. This device is designed be used as a primary or secondary heat source for terrestrial snakes, particularly those that are active at night. 

Dimensions: 3.5" x 18"

Wattage: 10w

Instructions for Use:

Stick the Zoo Med Snake Strip U.T.H. on the rear portion of the terrarium to create a temperature gradient. The mat should be large enough to accommodate your reptile's entire body.

Heat mats work best with a thin (<2") layer of substrate. Terrariums with a thicker substrate layer should use an overhead heat source such as a halogen basking bulb or ceramic heat emitter, depending on the intended use.

To keep your reptile at the right temperature and prevent burns, it is very important to use a thermostat such as the Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Thermostat with your heat mat!
