Hello. We have built a 7' enclosure for Sheila, our 1 year old green iguana. In order to prepare for cooler temperatures I have bought a ceramic heat emitter and a wire holder for the heat emitter. My problem is how to safely mount this. Sheila will jump onto this if we mount in the enclosure. I want to place this on the top of the enclosure but I don't know what material to use that is safe for this type of heat. Currently the top and sides of the enclosure are thick plastic mesh which will melt. I don't know if I could use a piece of plywood and cut a hole for the heat emitter or if I should use some type of special glass. I want to keep Sheila nice and warm this winter but I don't want to burn my house down. Please advise!
