Fluker's incandescent light bulbs provide the radiant heat (infrared light) that reptiles need. Reptiles are ectothermic and depend on their environmental temperature to regulate their core body temperature. If a reptile is not provided an appropriate environmental temperature range (ETR) it may be predisposed to chronic infections. Because ETR's vary from specie to species, ask your pet professional to review available literature for guidance in determining the appropriate ETR for your pet. Fluker's has provided an easy-to-read reference table to simplify bulb selection based on the distance the bulb will be placed from the reptile.
Available in the following wattages: 25, 60, 75, 100, 150
The sun produces three primary types of light: ultraviolet, visible, and infrared. Ultraviolet (UV) light helps in regulating behavior and stimulating Vitamin D production in reptiles. Visible light is the spectrum of light that allows humans and animals to see within our environment. Fluker's 5.0 UVB and 10.0 UVB Sun Glow Coil Bulbs generate both UV and visible light and should be used in combination with the Fluker's incandescent light bulbs to mimic natural sunlight.
