SNAKE ENCLOSURE GUIDE

When setting up your snake enclosure there are a few different options for heating; heat projector bulbs, radiant heat panels, and belly heat. Depending on how you would like to heat your enclosure you'll want to select different options when customizing your PVC snake cage. For sizing we recommend our 4x2x2 with swing open doors, if you use our 4x2x2 with sliding doors you'll want to add a door lock. For larger snakes we recommend a larger enclosure and tempered glass doors, reach out to us for a quote. >>CONTACT US<<

While belly heat is common in the reptile industry it’s not very practical as in nature heat comes from above and warms the animal and basking surface. While there is some heat that comes from below in the form of IR-C. Most natural heat comes from the sun in the form of IR-A & IR-B. Then the sun warms the environment and releases heat via convection in the form of IR-C. So personally I don't use belly heat for my animals but it's really personal preference as to how you would like to heat yours.
