Zoo Med Nano 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 particularly small pet reptiles at the optimum temperature with help from the Zoo Med Nano Dome Lamp Fixture. Its extra-small size makes it perfect for use with extra-small terrariums! 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.
Intended for use ONLY with Zoo Med Nano heating and lighting products. Bulb not included.
Maximum bulb wattage: 40w
Lamp diameter: 4"
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. Turn on to use.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.
