Size/Type

Fluker's Basking Bulb is an excellent source of direct infrared light, which creates the radiant heat cold-blooded reptiles need to maintain proper metabolism. These long-life bulbs last up to 3,500 hours and fit any standard incandescent socket.

  • Incandescent reptile lighting
  • Source of radiant heat (infrared light)
  • 3,500 hour life

Basking light is critical for diurnal (sun-loving) reptiles. If a reptile is not provided with appropriate environmental temperature range (ETR), it cannot regulate its core body temperature and may be more prone to chronic infections. Ideal ETR varies from species to species; consult your pet professional for lighting recommendations for your pet. Use Fluker's Incandescent Basking Bulbs with Fluker's Repta-Sun UVB lamps to mimic natural sunlight in your reptile's habitat.

Directions

Gently fasten the Fluker's incandescent bulb into a Fluker Clamp Lamp or Hood or any UL approved incandescent fixture. Do not plug light fixture into an electrical socket until bulb is fastened firmly to fixture. Place light fixture outside of reptile's enclosure. NEVER place the light fixture inside the enclosure. Reptiles can develop life-threatening thermal burns from contact with an exposed light bulb.

Note: Multiple incandescent lights may be required to establish an appropriate ETR. A Fluker's thermometer can be used to monitor temperature within the reptile's environment. Reptile behavior is directly tied to photoperiod (light cycle), so it is important to provide appropriate intervals of light and darkness. Fluker's recommends a 12-hour day/12 hour night light cycle. A Fluker's red light can be used to observe your reptile at night.

Note: Shipping is typically via FedEx, but USPS services may be utilized. Standard shipping typically uses FedEx SmartPost which may handoff to the USPS for final delivery. 

PRE-SHIPMENT TIME
Processing time can vary depending on the time of year, but most orders ship after 1-2 business days (M-F). Anything ordered around major holidays will likely experience demand-delays that may add 3-4 days to your processing time before your items ships. This is unavoidable due simply to a higher-than-usual demand around those times.

We carry two types of products: reptile and amphibian supplies as well as lifestyle products, including books, home goods, apparel, art, and commissioned work.  Given our lifestyle products represent independent stores, the price of shipping may differ or not qualify for the flat rate. This will be noted on the product page.

Long Lasting, Perfect for 40 gal Breeder

Long lasting bulb that heats my 40 gallon breeder perfectly. I always purchase these. I think the last one lasted 8-9 months doing 12 hours a day, every day on a timer.

Ok for a back up bulb

I’ve bought a few of these bulbs first order was for two. One was broken the second lasted a week and then blew I was sent two more that were lost in the mail and then showed up later they are ok for a temporary heat bulb replacement but not for everyday use
