Zoo Med Wire Cage Clamp Lamp is a heavy gauge painted aluminum fixture that comes with a heat-resistant ceramic socket, designed to help keep your pet reptile at the ideal temperature.
Ectothermic reptiles rely on external sources such as the sun for warmth, as they are unable to produce their own body heat. They utilize this heat energy to maintain their bodily functions, digest food and stay healthy. Therefore, heat lamps are necessary to provide the heat required by reptiles.
Instructions for Use:
With the Zoo Med Wire Cage Clamp Lamp, simply insert the bulb and make sure it is securely screwed into the socket. Plug in the cord and test the on/off switch to confirm that the bulb turns on. Place the fixture on top of the mesh screen covering your terrarium, ensuring that it is above the basking area on the extreme right or left of the enclosure to create a healthy temperature gradient.
Maximum bulb wattage: 150w
Bulb not included.
To ensure that your pet is receiving the correct temperatures, measure the temperature using the Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer at their basking area.
