    I new to the forum and to snakes. I will be getting a female sand boa in November and am researching under tank heaters at the moment. The ones I have available to me are zoo med reptitherm and exo terra heat wave. Which are better? Or is there a difference? I will need on suitable for a 20 gallon tank.

    My vote would be exo terra. I've heard about zoo meds catching fire...supposedly.

    None unless you you get a thermostat to go with it. These things will get hot enough to cause burns if left unregulated. But I have used both brands without issue though I do have more of the exo-terra units.

    Thanks, it seems people prefer the exo terras. I will be hooking it up to a dimmer.
