Lighting - Incandescent Bulbs

Lizards Home > Library > Caring and Maintenance
 
Description: A vacuum tube encases a tungsten resistance filament. When turned on, an electric current passes through the filament. As the filament heats up, it emits light.

Incandescent Bulbs are the most widely used lighting source for lizard habitats. This bulb does not emit the needed UVB rays, and should only be used as a heating source. Incandescent bulbs are perfect is used in combination with a full-spectrum flourescent bulb.

Most pet stores offer three types of incandescent bulbs: a normal daylight bulb, a basking spotlight, and a tight beam basking spotlight.
