One of the most important things to do when you are setting up your new pet’s habitat is to buy the proper lighting and heating equipment. Reptiles, amphibians and insects require particular heat gradients that can include temperatures of 110F or as low as 70F. Many reptiles require specific levels of UVB lighting to help them absorb calcium and stimulate vitamin D3. UVB lighting and correct heat temperatures also help many reptiles to properly digest their food.
Zoo Creatures carries everything you need to heat and light your animal’s tank or enclosure. We carry basking bulbs in many different sizes and strengths along with dome lamp fixtures to house the bulbs. We also have UVB bulbs that range from coil bulbs to T5 and T8 UVB bulbs. You’ll find terrarium hoods for UVB bulbs that can be placed on top of a screen cover or mounted in the tank. Heated rocks and heat mats/pads as well as heat sensors and thermometers are always in stock.
