Bought this for our leopard tortoise who is now being kept outside in an insulated shed with access to outside during the day. His shell and growth is far better since using this bulb. It generates very good heat with just a fixed wall tubular heater as backup but this is hardly used and only tends to switch on when I have opened the shed up. Excellent bulb and would highly recommend.
Use this bulb for my leapard tortoise who lives in an outside enclosure all year round. Wouldn’t use anything else. Excellent product.
Really well packaged, and fast delivery.
