Size/Type

Fluker's Black Nightlight Bulb is an excellent source of the direct radiant heat that cold-blooded reptiles need for proper metabolism. These long-life bulbs last up to 3,500 hours and do not create visible light to support your reptile's day/night cycle.

  • Emits no visible light to support day/night cycle
  • Source of radiant heat (infrared light)
  • Up to 3,500 hour bulb life

Radiant heat is critical for providing reptiles with a healthy habitat. 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. Fluker's Black Nightlight bulbs emit low levels of additional UV radiation to provide the heat reptiles need during the night cycle.

The sun produces three types of light: ultraviolet, visible, and infrared. UV light helps in regulating behavior and stimulating Vitamin D production in reptiles. Visible light is the spectrum of light that allows humans and animals to see within our environment. Fluker's 5.0 UVB and 10.0 UVB Sun Glow Coil Bulbs generate both UV and visible light and should be used in combination with Fluker's incandescent light bulbs to mimic natural sunlight.

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.

Important: 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 flight and darkness. Fluker's recommends a 12-hour day/12-hour night light cycle. A Fluker's Daytime bulb should be used during the daytime cycle.

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.
