WILBANKS HOMEOSTATIC INCUBATORS™
The new incubators are unlike anything ever seen on the reptile market. Homeostasis is defined as a state of steady internal conditions despite external variables. Our Homeostatic Reptile Incubator does just what the name implies. It maintains the set temperature without regard to the external temperature. These incubators achieve this homeostatic condition by heating or cooling depending on external factors to maintain the set temperature.
All the incubators come with locking glass doors, thermostat with continual monitored temp display, LED lights, air circulation system with activated carbon filtration, heating, and cooling.
The incubators will incubate any species of reptile egg with precision and an accurate adherence to the desired set point regardless of the external room temperature. The ability to cool as well as heat make these incubators much more than just another reptile incubator. Cooling allows you to put the incubator in a room that is warmer or cooler than the desired incubation temperature. For instance, Chahoua Geckos sex is determined by the incubation temperature. If females are desired incubation should be set to 72°F. This makes placement of a traditional incubator very difficult since most reptile rooms are kept above 72°F. We can now place these incubators anywhere in our facility including the hot warehouse and incubate our gecko eggs at 72°F. When eggs near hatching they will often generate enough heat to make the incubator surpass the set incubation temperature. When this happened to us in the past, we had to vent our incubator by cracking the door to keep it from overheating. Now with our homeostatic incubators our eggs will incubate at the set temperature at any age of development.
Many species of colubrid require a hibernation period to successfully reproduce. Many people will achieve this by placing the animals in a cold garage during the winter months to simulate a hibernation period. With our incubator you can set a desired hibernation temperature like 55°F for instance, put your rack trays with lids in the incubator and hibernate your animals. No more worrying about a garage getting too warm or too cold during the hibernation period. It also allows for off season cycling. So colubrid can be put in hibernation even in the hot summer months. When the eggs are laid you can put in the same space for them to incubate and hatch.
There are many species that require temperatures that are not practical to maintain for most keepers. For instance, Fire Salamanders like a temperature ranging from 10 to 15 degrees. Now it is possible to keep and propagate many species of insects, reptiles and amphibians that previously had prohibitive temperature requirements.
