Reptiles make great pets, but they aren't necessarily easy to look after. You won't need to take your reptile for a walk everyday, but you will need to supply it with a healthy environment with the ideal reptile heating and lighting. And to do that, you will need the reptile heating and lighting devices from a store you can trust.
There is a fundamental reason reptiles need supplementary heat: Reptiles are cold-blooded. They can not control their body temperature. In nature, reptiles regulate their body heat by switching their environment. They get sun on a rock. They burrow into the ground. But reptiles in a cage do not have that choice. They need you to provide heat for them. Some reptiles, like geckos and ball pythons, require supplementary heat 24/7.
Reptile heating isn't quite as simple as placing a heating system in a cage. Many heating units emit light. Using them to keep a pet reptile warm can be like creating 24-hour daylight, so your pet would not have a typical cycle of activity and rest. Heating for reptiles at night needs to come from an infrared source, like a heated ceramic, rather than from a heat lamp. On the other hand, reptiles you keep indoors also need supplementary lighting. They need the same wavelengths of light given by sunlight so their bodies can make vitamin D. They need a daytime light source in addition to a extra heat source all the time. And different reptiles require different reptile heating and lighting. Here is a rundown of reptile heating and lighting requirements by species.
Ball python heating and lighting: Ball pythons require 8 to 12 hours of light daily, with several breaks of 1 to 2 hours during the day. They like a nocturnal light source to imitate conditions in the wild; infrared light is great at night (just not a glowing light bulb).
Bearded dragon heating and lighting: Bearded dragons require constant heat, ideally from a ceramic heat source 24 hours a day. They also like to be able to indulge in the "sunlight" you offer with an incandescent bulb, but ensure it's only switched on during the day.
Chameleon heating and lighting: Chameleons definitely should have UV-B light during the day so their bodies can make vitamin D. They like reduced temperatures at night from an infrared bulb.
Corn snake heating and lighting: Corn snakes require 8 to 12 hours of light every day with a "night light" or infrared light at night. Do not provide too much white light.
Gecko heating and lighting: Geckos are nocturnal, so they don't need lights that provide UV-B. A regular incandescent bulb for daytime lighting works great, but they need ceramic heat or a nocturnal heat bulb at all hours.
