Default incubator

We have made our incubator but it cost alot of money. Would a bought one have been cheaper. It cost us £70 odd. The thermostat was £55 as we were told it had to be a constant temperature. The heat mat £14, pleased to say we were given the poly box!!!! Is our local reptile shop expensive???

Its a bit pricey for a thermostat. A friend of mine got one from his local reptile shop and it only cost him £50, thermostat, heatmat, box, and thermometer.

Default Thermostats

I do think that these shops take advantage of novices. Let's hope my our gecko's hatch after that price.

theyre awesome. I'm going to try the first one first.

should be cheaper for me 'cause i already have a mat-stat (taken it from my snake, as temps are all good now!!) just need to find a polybox and some wood to hold the tubs.
