Pet owners can deliver heat deep into their reptile’s body with Zoo Med Laboratories’ ReptiCare Infrared Heat Projector. The bulb emits energy-rich infrared (IRa and IRb), which gives immediate, powerful warmth at lower wattages than standard heat bulbs. These infrared wavelengths are directed down into the habitat with a thick glass reflector, and then soaked up by surrounding rocks and décor. Décor will release this heat upward to warm the air and provide belly heat for more natural basking. Owners can use the heat projector day or night because it produces virtually no light. Its thick, carbon fiber filament has a long lifespan, and the company guarantees it for one year through its manufacturer’s warranty.
