Most reptiles benefit from infrared light to help them thermoregulate. Infrared light (IR-A, IR-B, IR-C) penetrates deep, warming their entire bodies. Reptiles benefit from a combination of IR-A, IR-B, and IR-C. The sun, or your basking spot bulb, produces the needed IR-A/B. IR-C is produced from stored heat on surfaces such as rocks, which is the reason many reptiles bask on rocks in the wild. Our Zen Cave includes a slate stone basking spot, which provides the IR-C your reptile needs.
Basks on it during the day, sleeps under it at night. Perfect
It's nice! My only gripe was that the slate top didn't fit properly in the top of the hide, but I filed it down and made it fit. Unfortunately it is now stuck in the top, but it fits and I'm sure it'll be great in my future Zen Habitat enclosure (still waiting on that).
My dragon LOVES his hides!!! I put one in the hot corner and one in the cold and he is always on them or in them. I can't imagine using a different hide.
I won my zen corner basking hide through an Instagram post. I had been looking at them for a while though and was lucky enough to win! It’s a beautiful product and is well made. My beardie loves it!
My beardie LOVES it, the ONLY thing i would say that would improve the cave itself is; to make the spot where the slate fits in the top, MUCH more flush. Bcuz it wobbles back & forth pretty badly.
Absolutely great piece!! Grogu loves it. He is on it or under it in the hide quire often. The slate top is a unique feature that works incredibly well. Helps him get that extra bit of heat down south when he needs it. Its built rock solid, and the box it is ships in is incredibly sturdy, very well protected in it, and very well padded.
Can't say enough good things about this piece. Its my first piece from Zen Habitats, and if this type of quality is their typical standard, they are a force to be reckoned with and have a new and loyal customer!
This is the way.
The customer service is awesome, they replied quickly and efficiently.
My girl has never been happier! We have tried all sorts of basking spots and this is the only one she really seems to like. Usually it takes weeks for here to adjust to new piece of decor but not this one! She’s been basking on it and sleeping in it since day one. So glad I gave this product a try!
Functional and attractive- generously sized, with ample interior room for an adult bearded dragon. Not sure how my boy will like the slate basking platform, which should fit his body well enough; he’s taking one of his winter siestas and hasn’t come out to investigate yet. Still, I’m very pleased! It’s definitely bigger than I anticipated!
