FAQs About Reptile Light

You can use a variety of heat lamps for your lizard. A reptile UVB light is a popular selection, and so are basking lamps and heating pads. Depending on the lamps you use, you can interchange certain bulbs that will emit different heat levels. Check out our guide on choosing the right reptile heat lamp.

In most cases, yes. Since these lizards can often do well with a cooler night temperature, we recommend using a ceramic heater. These heaters emit infrared heat, and the ceramic heater or nocturnal bulb can be used at all hours of the day. It’s often best to provide UVB rays with full-spectrum lighting for 10 to 12 hours each day. An incandescent day bulb is perfect for providing your beardie a basking light during daylight hours only.

That all depends on the size of your pet, but as a general rule, bigger is better. The minimum appropriate terrarium size for a bearded dragon is 48” X 24” X 24”, but for larger dragons, you might consider going up to 60” X 36” X 36”. The biggest dragons can get up to 24-feet long, so be sure to get a tank big enough for your pet to move around comfortably.

And within your bearded dragon tank, you’ll need heat maps, décor, hideaways, substrate and bedding. You’ll also need to stock up on food, vitamins and supplements for your scaly pet.
