Reptile Basking Bulbs

Heat lamps are essential for healthy pets!

Reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates are ectotherms (cold-blooded), which means that they can't regulate their body temperature on their own. They need an external source of heat (namely, the sun) to supply that warmth for them so they can have energy and be healthy.

In captivity, you can replicate the warmth produced by the sun with a heat bulb. Simply place the heat lamp on one end of the enclosure to create a basking area on one side and a cool area on the other, which enables your cold-blooded friend to regulate its own body temperature as needed.

ReptileSupply.com only stocks the most reliable brands of reptile basking bulbs, such as Zoo Med and Exo-Terra, as well as every type and strength you may need. Check out our extensive range of high-quality basking bulbs at low prices!

Different kinds of exotic pets need different basking temperatures, so make sure to pick up a digital thermometer as well to make sure you're providing exactly the amount of heat that your pet needs.
