Incandescent Bulbs for Reptiles
Incandescent bulbs produce heat, which in a fish aquarium is a bad thing, but for a reptile or amphibian setup it is a great thing. Reptile heat bulbs are a key component in the assembly of many habitats. Heat bulbs are designed for specific functions, in addition to being designed to produce heat. Repti basking spot lamps are for producing a narrowly directed beam of heat into a specific area for reptile basking. Infrared and moonlight bulbs are designed specifically for night time use. Red is often used since it is not visible to reptiles.
