Exo Terra’s Heat Wave Rock Simulates Sun-Warmed Stones for Reptiles

MANSFIELD, Mass. During the day, the sun’s rays warm the rocks in the desert and rainforest, so that at night, the reptiles that dwell there can stay warm, as the surfaces continue to radiate heat long after the sun has set.  The Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. has developed a way to replicate this conductive heat with its Exo Terra Heat Wave Rock, which simulates a stone warmed by the sun.

While overhead terrarium lighting provides radiant heat, many reptiles also rely on conductive heat, which helps them to maintain a healthy appetite, metabolism and digestion.  The electronically-controlled, energy-efficient Heat Wave Rock is an ideal choice to provide reptiles with the conductive heat necessary for optimum health, while adding natural beauty to the terrarium habitat, be it desert or rainforest.

The Heat Wave Rock is made of a special thermal conductive resin with a fully-encased electronically controlled heating element that automatically shuts off when the optimal surface temperature is reached.  This important safeguard prevents the reptiles from being burned or overheated.

Waterproof, non-toxic and easy to clean, the Heat Wave Rock is available in three sizes to accommodate most reptiles and terrariums.  The MSRP ranges from $17.99 to $29.99 at most pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, visit
