Product ID # 4027
Unique Design Prolongs Life Up to
5 years -
Twice as Long as Competing Products!
The only UL tested and approved ceramic heat device
for use with animals!
Sugar Glider body temperatures are only 2 degrees different from
yours - if you are comfy in a short sleeve shirt, it's likely your glider
will be too. If you are
cold, your sugar glider is cold too. The ideal temp is between
70 and 85 degrees. Gliders can tolerate temps a bit more
extreme, but this is the range that your glider will be happiest and
In the winter months, many people turn down their thermostats and
wear heavier clothing to save on the ol' energy bill. Good
idea! But where's the sweater for your sugar glider? The
ceramic heat emitter, with special "heat, no light"
properties, is the ideal answer.
What happens if a sugar glider gets too cold?
Correct temperature is particularly important for gliders with
young. Young joeys cannot regulate their own body temperature.
If they crawl away from the parents, the joey's temp will drop, and
when the joey gets cold, we suspect the joey's scent
diminishes. The parents may longer recognize their own young
and we believe this leads to parental abandonment.
If temp ranges get too low for adult gliders, colds and other
respiratory problems like pneumonia can develop. If they get
very cold, hypothermia and other life threatening conditions
Ceramic Heat Emitter
4" long, 3" diameter across flat
This is the only UL tested and approved ceramic heat device
for animal use. The heat emitter can increase the inside
air temperature of your cage a full 10-20 degrees F above room
temperature. The ceramic heat emitter is a non-light (infrared)
producing heat source. Why is this important? Sources of
heat that give off light can throw off the nocturnal rhythms of
Because of the unique flat face of this emitter, there is less
heat left inside the emitter which ultimately carbonizes the
element. It lasts up to 5 years - twice as long as the other
shapes of emitters! This 100 watt "bulb" also
has an insulated neck for maximum directed heat efficiency and burn
life. It produces long wavelength infrared emissions for
maximum heat penetration. As
you know, we don't approve of "in the cage heaters"
like heat rocks. The ceramic heat emitter can be safely placed
outside the cage, out of the reach of your sugar gliders, yet still
produce lots of warmth for your gliders inside the cage.
Screw the ceramic infrared heat emitter into a porcelain lamp
fixture. It must be a porcelain lamp fixture in order to work
properly and safely - not all lamp fixtures are appropriate.
Point the bulb from above towards the bottom of the cage - the
distance of the bulb from the cage will be determined by what your
room temperature is, but it should be at least 6 inches from the
cage. Use a thermometer to see what temperature you are
creating in the cage, and move the emitter around until you are
maintaining the desired temperature in the cage. Make sure
your glider can't reach any wires.
Porcelain Clamp Lamp
9" long clamp stem, 8" long bulb
housing, 6 foot
long cord, 5 1/2" diameter bulb area, 3" wide clamp foot with
rubber pads, includes on / off switch.
This lamp fixture has the porcelain socket required for safe
operation of the ceramic heat emitter. It also features a 360
degree swivel joint for easier positioning and more control over keeping the
lamp fixture out of the reach of a curious sugar glider.
If the lamp will not clamp directly to the cage due to the
configuration of the cage wire / surface, this lamp can be clamped
to a chair, table, shelf, window sill, or some other household furnishing to
provide the directed heat toward the critter habitat. For
maximum safety, position the end of the bulb cage no closer than
3" from the cage wall; this will provide 6" of space
between the surface of the emitter bulb and the cage wall (glider
tails are usually about 6" long).
ZooMed Remote Sensor Thermostat 500R
Thermostat is 2.5" tall x 3.5" wide,
with a 6 foot power cord and a 6 foot wire from control to sensor
As you were reading the emitter section above on positioning the
emitter for the right cage temperature, perhaps you were thinking,
"Man, there has got to be an easier way". The remote
sensor thermostat is the easier way. Just pick the
temperature you want on the dial, and the thermostat does the rest, automatically
turning the ceramic heat emitter on and off to maintain the ideal
temperature for your sugar gliders. Simply attach the
thermostat sensor to the cage so the rounded "bulb" end sticks
into the cage area, plug the emitter into the thermostat, plug the
thermostat into a wall socket, and dial up desired temp. Be
sure that your sugar glider cannot directly reach cords attached to
the lamp or the thermostat. The sensor must be positioned for
accurate readings, yet cords out of reach of your glider. The
thermostat package also includes a safety cover to help prevent
accidental changing of the temperature setting.
Plus, this thermostat has two outlets to plug into so if
you have a large cage or need more heat it will control two
emitter-clamp lamp sets totaling up to 500 watts of power at the
Keep your gliders warm this winter - and safe - with the right
tool for the job, a ceramic heat emitter.
