Reptile Night Bulbs
Zilla Night Black Light Incandescent Bulb is made with specially tinted dark glass that contains rare black phosphors. This allows the heat to escape while most of the light is trapped to create a soft ambient glow that simulates natural moonlight, providing visibility without disrupting the day/night cycle.
- Provides ambient heat in terrariums
- Great for night-time viewing to observe natural nocturnal behaviors
- Ideal for tropical and desert reptile habitats
A healthy level of 24-hour heat is essential to maintain a non-stressful environment for your desert or tropical snake, lizard, or turtle. When used in a nocturnal heat lamp, the Zilla Night Black Light warms the air in the terrarium to maintain a comfortable, healthy temperature that promotes natural reptile activities (including breeding). Its a great way to keep your pets healthy while being able to check out its interesting nocturnal behaviors without disturbing its sleep schedule.
Directions: Do not touch lamp or fixtures while operating. This lamp generates heat; keep away from combustible materials. Position and shield fixture so reptiles are unable to touch lamp. Adjust for proper temperature. Keep out of reach of children.

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. Flukers Black Nightlight bulbs emit low levels of supplemental 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. Flukers 5.0 UVB and 10.0 UVB Sun Glow Coil Bulbs generate both UV and visible light and should be used in combination with Flukers incandescent light bulbs to mimic natural sunlight.
Directions: Gently fasten the Flukers 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 reptiles 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 Flukers thermometer can be used to monitor temperature within the reptiles environment. Reptile behavior is directly tied to photoperiod (light cycle), so it is important to provide appropriate intervals of flight and darkness. Flukers recommends a 12-hour day/12-hour night light cycle. A Flukers Daytime bulb should be used during the daytime cycle.
