 Different heaters !?!?

So I just got my first snake and was wondering if it would be better to get a under the tank heater or a heating rock ?

Never use heating rocks snakes literally died from it because it gets way too hot causing 3rd degree burns and death, I’m surprised they still sell these things just get a under tank heater(UTH) and plug in to a thermostat to control the temps of the uth so it won’t get too hot. When using the pad don’t let the tank crush/sit on it give it some space so it won’t cause a fire.

Hi congrats what kind of ball python did u get. As far as an answer to ur question about heat, NEVER use a heat rock. It can and will burn ur snakes belly, due to the fact they cannot be regulated. A heat uth pad will be just fine, make sure to get a make sure u get a thermostat and that u have one a hot spot of 90 -93 and a cool spot of 80.feel free to ask me anything and I’ll do my best to help u

No heating rocks!!!! They will burn your snakes belly!!!! Use heating straps under their enclosure on half of the tank, or at least give them a warm side and a cooler side.
