If you use the search tool and the terms "waterproofing plywood" you'll get not only product suggestions, but tutorials and warnings and all sorts of things you probably didn't even know to think about. :)

Good luck!

The advice up to now is solid - do that.

do i need to paint/seal the inside and if so what paints are safe for the reptiles and heat resistant
1) In all likelihood, yes. Seal, not so much paint / color.
2) Animal-safe is a requirement. The fact you're asking about heat and not (for example...) moisture or chemical (e.g., urea / urates) resistance leads me to wonder about your application or use-case. What are you trying to accomplish?

good luck!
