Default Royal habitat heating.

Made the decision on a royal python as next addition however im conflicted by views on heating. Would a heat mat on it's own be sufficient or would a ceramic or lamp be needed also?

I was thinking of an AHS heater also but not atall clued up on these and the price is a bit off putting (allthough i've heard they are extremely efficient.)

It will be a wooden viv 3x2x2 (maybe in a stack of 4)

the price isn't that off putting. You can pick up a second hand AHS for around £50 and it has its own stat built in.

for a viv that size you'd be better with a ceramic heater. Bulb - £10 - guard - £10 - Pulse Stat - £45. Then unless you can get them local you have to add postage, so roughly another £10.

AHS - £50
Ceramic - £75

so an AHS heater would be sufficient on its own? at that price i could possibly equip all my vivs with them and the ones i will be making. the 4 3x2x2 would be for 2 corns a royal and a spare for another that could live in as an adult however i wna get my royal, quarantined then moved in first.

Thanks

Daz

pretty much. They have their own guard on them but some people say to add another just in case
