Ectothermic creatures, commonly known as "cold-blooded" reptiles, rely on external heat sources such as the sun for the required heat energy to function effectively as they cannot generate their own body heat.
The Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer is a handy pocket-sized "temp gun" that can quickly measure the temperature of any surface with just a click of a button. It enables keepers to monitor thermal gradients, basking spots, shelters, as well as incubation and hibernation temperatures. Therefore, it's an essential tool for all reptile and amphibian keepers.
The Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer provides the option to read temperatures in Fahrenheit (-28° to 230°F) or Celsius (-33° to 110°C). It also features a Min/Max function, enabling you to keep track of the temperature changes in your terrarium over an extended period.
