What It Says On The Box:
The herp-nursery II is a multifunctional device equipped with an innovative peltier-system. This allows the device to cool and to heat, making it suitable for use as an incubator but also for hibernating animals.
It can switch automatically between heating and cooling to keep the desired temperature. Contrary to other incubators the Lucky Reptile Herp Nursery II will automatically enter cooling mode if the breeding temperature is surpassed and bring it back to optimum preventing the loss of eggs due to overheating. A very useful function on hot summer days.
The temperature area is approximately 5 to 60 degree Celsius but depends on the surrounding temperature. The digital thermostat allows setting the temperature in 1 degree Celsius steps. Please note that there is temperature gradient of 4 degree Celsius between upper and lower area inside the device. Thanks to the plenty of space the herp nursery offer, this is a big advantage as you can incubate different species with different temperature requirements or breed for specific sexes and all in one device.
Due to the temperature gradient, the displayed temperature is only a guideline and we recommend monitoring the temperature in the different parts with a separate thermometer.
The Herp Nursery II is very energy efficient and only needs 10 W/h on average. A large front window enables a good and easy monitoring of the inside. Interior lighting can be turned on if necessary.
