Environmental heat is critical for providing reptiles with a healthy habitat. If a reptile is not provided with appropriate environmental temperature range (ETR), it cannot regulate its core body temperature and may be more prone to chronic infections. Ideal ETR varies from species to species; consult your pet professional for lighting recommendations for your pet. Flukers Red Heat Incandescent Bulbs provide moderate heat combined with low light, perfect for observing nocturnal reptiles.
Directions: Gently fasten the Flukers incandescent bulb into a Fluker Clamp Lamp or Hood or any UL approved incandescent fixture. Do not plug light fixture into an electrical socket until bulb is fastened firmly to fixture. Place light fixture outside for reptiles enclosure. NEVER place the light fixture inside the enclosure. Reptiles can develop life-threatening thermal burns from contact with an exposed light bulb.
Note: Multiple incandescent lights may be required to establish an appropriate ETR. A Flukers thermometer can be used to monitor temperature within the reptiles environment. Reptile behavior is directly tied to photoperiod (light cycle), so it is important to provide appropriate intervals of light and darkness. Flukers recommends a 12-hour day/12-hour night light cycle. A Flukers Daytime bulb should be used during the daytime cycle.
