NO HEAT ROCKS!

As long as you have the proper lighting (heat & UV), there is no need for a heat rock. Remember that it naturally gets a little chilly at night in the wild, even in the hot areas where these lizards hail from.

If you are really concerned about nighttime temps, get either a low-wattage infrared heat bulb or an undertank heater just to be one at night.

Hot rocks are a very unnatural way to provide warmth to lizards, and they can malfunction and burn the animal. Just put a real stone or block directly under the heat lamp, and this will be fine. Even a piece of slate or a cinder block will work.
