Zoo Med ReptiCare Ceramic Infrared Heat Emitters provide 24 hour heat for all tropical and desert reptiles. Each ceramic heat bulb lasts up to 5 years, which is twice as long as the competition! ReptiCare Heat Emitters emit no light, are water resistant, and perfect for high humidity terrariums.
These porcelain heating devices screw into a standard porcelain incandescent socket, giving off intense, "muscle-penetrating" infrared heat, while emitting no light. The flat-faced design is more efficient and longer lasting than conical designs which build up excess heat internally, ultimately carbonizing the element.
