Overwhelmed with all of my lighting/heating options
Posted by Rischelle on 10/20/2016, 10:13 am
a couple weeks ago I submitted an adoption application for an Iguana from the shelter in Seattle, getting an iguana from a shelter never crossed my mind but I was at the pacific science center and here was this beautiful 4ft girl with a fabulous disposition and an adopt me sign above her cage, anyway the shelter accepted my application. I have had several reptiles (mostly snakes) including a large male iguana (I was pretty young when we had him, he passed at the age of 17 when I was 9 or 10) so I'm not a complete newbie and I have brushed up on my iguana knowledge. I am currently in the process of building a 8ft H x 4ft W x 8ft L enclosure. The problem I am having is trying to figure out what lights to get. There is so much information about lighting it gets overwhelming if you could recommend what lights and their wattage (i.e. Fluorescent UVB or MVB? Basking light? How many do I need?) for that size cage I would appreciate it! I already have 2 infared bulbs for nighttime and 2 CHE. Thank you!
