Do the WON Titanium heaters get hot enough to hurt a snail?

I need a bigger heater so I am thinking about picking up a 100w WON Pro Heat Titanium Heater locally for $24. My only concern is that it might get too hot for a snail to be crawling on? I have no experience with these heaters.

It is fun to watch the snails run off the Visi Therm I have now, just not sure hot the titanium element gets and how quickly it gets up to that temp

I happen to have the very same heater. My snails will climb around it, behind it but never on it!

Thank goodness for small favors.

My snails crawl all over my current Visi-Therm like it is a giant candy bar :P

I'm not surprised. I found my snail surfing on the tall artificial tree. It was moving from one side of the tank to the other due to his weight. He didn't jump off until I guess he got bored.

Why not play it safe and install a heater guard?

I have not seen any good looking heater guards sized to fit the Titanium heater. If you know of any, please let me know

Mine's in my sump/fuge. I have not seen any problems with snails or hermits crawling on it, hot or cold. I doubt it would be any worse that your Visi-Therm.
