  • Excellent 24 hour heat source for use with the Exo Terra Reptile Dome NANO
  • Emits a natural “sun-like” infrared heat, essential for activity and digestion
  • No light emitted, does not disrupt your animal’s physical activity patterns
  • Increases the overall air temperature in the terrarium
  • Solid ceramic element, 100% heat efficiency
  • Perfect for use with the Exo Terra NANO & MINI terrariums

The Exo Terra Ceramic Heater is a radiant heat source which creates a natural sunlike heat with a uniform pattern. The long wave infrared heat produced by this emitter will warm reptiles very efficiently. It also increases the ambient airtemperature in the terrarium. Infrared heat penetrates the scales and skin tissue, promoting health and healing as it widens the blood vessels and increases blood circulation. The Ceramic Heater is to be used only with the specially designed Exo Terra Wire Light.

Pet care bulb for use with Reptiles, Amphibians and Invertebrates only


The FIR or far infrared heat rays emitted by the Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters will not only provide radiant heat, but will also provide conductive heat by heating up rocks or branches in the terrarium, similar to surfaces heated by the sun in their natural environment. With the Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters you can easily create basking areas because you can provide the heat directly where it is needed most. Because the Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters dot not convert any energy into visible light, the heating efficiency is 100%, making them highly energy efficient.


Reptiles are ectotherm and thus need a specific ambient temperature, in order to thrive. The Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters increase the ambient temperature and provide heat gradients for thermo-regulation. Because Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters do not emit any visible light, the long wave infrared heat produced by this emitter will not disrupt the animals day and night cycle, making it an excellent 24-hour radiant heat source for reptiles and amphibians. 


The primary radiant heat, and secondary indirect conductive heat, of the Exo Terra® Radiant Heaters will allow your reptiles to thermoregulate their body temperature to achieve an optimal temperature for enhanced activity and healthy digestion of their food items. The Infrared heat radiation will aid cell growth, wound-healing, promote the immune system, protect against UV damage, and stimulate many other biological processes.
