Reptiles are ectothermic, meaning they rely on their environment to regulate their body temperature. This is why it is important to provide a basking area for your reptile pet where they can warm up under a basking bulb. Choose a bulb with the right wattage depending on the size of your pet. Too much heat can be dangerous, so be sure to monitor your pet’s temperature and adjust the bulb accordingly.
A good rule of thumb is to have a temperature gradient in your reptile’s enclosure, with one end being warmer than the other. This will allow your pet to choose the temperature that is best for them. Be sure to provide plenty of hiding places and climbing branches in your pet’s enclosure to make them feel safe and secure.
