Fluker's precision calibrated thermometer enables you to monitor an accurate environmental temperature range (ETR) within your pet's enclosure effectively to promote good health and longevitiy. Reptiles and amphibians are dependent on environmental temperature to regulate their body temperature and maintain proper health. Amphibians:
Most amphibians can be maintained in an ETR of 70-76 F. They do not tolerate temperatures above 82 F. They should experience a minimal night-time temperature drop of 5-10 F. Reptiles:
An appropriate ETR for desert reptiles is typically 85-95 F, temperate species 75-90F and tropical species 80-90 F. Free movement between the warm and cool sides of their enclosures is essential. Reptiles should experience a minimal night-time drop of 5-10 F.
