Reptiles make great pets, but  they aren't necessarily easy to take care of. You won't need to take your reptile for a walk everyday, but you will need to provide it with a healthy environment with the right reptile heating and lighting. And to do that, you will need the reptile heating and lighting tools from a store you can rely on.

There is a fundamental reason reptiles need extra heat: Reptiles are cold-blooded. They can not regulate their body heat. In nature, reptiles manage their body temperature by changing their environment. They get sun on a rock. They burrow into the ground. But reptiles in a cage do not have that choice. They require you to supply heat for them. Some reptiles, like geckos and ball pythons, require extra heat 24/7.

Reptile heating isn't quite as straightforward as placing a heater in a cage. Many heating systems emit light. Using them to keep a pet reptile warm can be like producing 24-hour daylight, so your pet would not have a typical cycle of activity and rest. Heating for reptiles during the night needs to come from an infrared source, like a heated ceramic, instead of from a heat lamp. On the other hand, reptiles you keep indoors also need supplemental lighting. They need the same wavelengths of light offered by sunlight so their bodies can make vitamin D. They need a daytime light source along with a extra heat source at all times. And different reptiles require different reptile heating and lighting. Here is a rundown of reptile heating and lighting demands by species.

Ball python heating and lighting: Ball pythons require 8 to 12 hours of light everyday, with numerous 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, preferably from a ceramic heat source 24 hours a day. They also like to be able to indulge in the "sun light" you give with an incandescent bulb, but ensure it's only switched on during the day.

Chameleon heating and lighting: Chameleons definitely must have UV-B light during the day so their bodies can make vitamin D. They prefer lower temperatures at night from an infrared bulb.

Corn snake heating and lighting: Corn snakes need 8 to 12 hours of light each day with a "night light" or infrared light at night. Don't give them 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.
