Zoo Med Deep Dome Lamp Fixture
Reptiles are ectothermic ("cold-blooded"), which means that instead of producing their own body heat, they depend on external sources for warmth — like the sun. This heat energy is used to digest their food, maintain bodily function, and stay generally healthy. Since reptiles don't produce their own heat, we must provide the heat they need with heat lamps.
Keep your pet reptile at optimum temperature with help from the Zoo Med Deep Dome Lamp Fixture. This fixture features an extra long reflector dome that extends beyond the face of the bulb, preventing the bulb from sticking out. Plus, the highly polished aluminum interior maximizes bulb output.
Bulb not included.
MADE IN THE USA
Maximum bulb wattage: 160w
Insert bulb and ensure it is securely screwed into the socket. Plug cord into outlet and/or timer as needed and test on/off switch, and ensure that the bulb turns on. Place on top of the mesh screen covering your terrarium, ensuring that you have the fixture above the basking area on the extreme right or left of the enclosure to create a healthy temperature gradient.
For best results, use the Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer to measure the temperature at your pet's basking area to make sure they are getting the right temps for their needs.
