Hi, I'm Dr. Jena Questen and I'm a veterinarian. I've had a few of my clients ask me where should they put their light in their lizard terrarium. Well, in addition to knowing where to put the light, you also need to make sure you have the right light such as this one which is a UVB bulb and so this is a light that's very beneficial and essential for the health of the lizard. So what you want to do is have this about 18 inches away from your pet and so you want to have it maybe, like right about here on this lizard habitat, any higher than that and then the rays won't penetrate as far. The other thing to keep in mind about penetration is that these lights will not penetrate through a reflective surface such as a metal screen on top of an aquarium, glass or plastic. So you want to make sure that it's something that the lights are actually going to get through to your lizard such as this particular habitat which is specifically designed to allow those UVB rays to shine through. So hopefully today I've given you a little bit of an idea of the exact height on what kind of a bulb that you want to use in a lizard terrarium to keep your pet healthy and on that note, I'm Dr. Q. and the rest is up to you. Thanks for stopping by.
