Two of the most important aspects of creating a habitat that closely replicates his natural one are to set up heating and lighting properly. All species of reptiles require different types and amounts of heat and light, and it’s your job as his caretaker to provide the light and heat your reptilian friend needs to thrive. Reptiles are solar powered, meaning every single aspect of their lives is dictated by their daily exposure to solar light and heat, or the artificial equivalent when they live in a manmade habitat like the one in your home. Correct reptile lighting is essential for a long, healthy life for your pet. To fully explain the different types of lighting and how it affects reptiles would take pages and pages of information, so we have to give a condensed version here. Most lizards and many snakes need high levels of full-spectrum lighting, which include UVB and UVA rays. Reptile caretakers must use lamps and other lighting sources to provide their pets very specific lighting needs.

Incandescent lamps provide excellent heat and visible light for a basking spot, and these types of lights can be thermostatically controlled. Incandescent lamps connected to timers can produce effects of dawn and dusk, and timed power strips can switch them on and off. Don’t be overwhelmed by the number of lighting sources available here. After you’ve done extensive research on the lighting needs of your pet, you’ll know which ones will work best, and we encourage you to seek guidance from an experienced reptile owner before making any purchases. Here, you’ll find combination lighting units, dome fixture and clamp lamps, halogen bulbs, fluorescent bulbs, incandescent bulbs, lamp stands, timed power strips, nocturnal and moon lighting units and so much more. Once you’ve learned what type of lighting is best for your pet, you can begin the process of setting up a habitat that will allow your reptilian buddy to flourish. Learning how to care for reptiles is fascinating, and it’s something you can continue to learn about for many, many years. In no time at all, you’ll be the expert others turn to for advice.
