Ceiling Fan on at night?

Postby Ccrestedgecko » Thu Sep 10, 2015 4:39 pm

Hi guys I have 3 reptiles, a BTS, mex black kingsnake and a crested gecko in a relatively small room in which I also sleep. I get rather hot in my house at night and I was wondering if I turned the ceiling fan on, would it felt my reptiles at all or not? Thankyou for all your answers.

From what I understand fans don't affect reptiles like they do us. In order for us to cool down we sweat, the sweat evaporates and it's the evaporation that cools us. For reptiles to cool down all they have to do is leave their basking spot since their main goal is to warm up. So if anything it will just create more airflow and shouldn't be a problem.
I love mexican blacks btw :)

Reptile wouldn't notice a fan on unless it was directly pointed at it without anything in the way, enclosure protects most of it from the fan currant, at most it might feel like a very faint wind to them which they would be more then used to in the wild.
I personally keep 1-3 fans on in my room 24/7 because i live in hotbox land.
