Reptiles make fantastic pets, but they aren't always easy to look after. You will not need to take your reptile for a walk daily, but you will need to supply it with a healthy environment with the appropriate 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 basic reason reptiles require supplementary heat: Reptiles are cold-blooded. They can not regulate their body temperature. In nature, reptiles control their body heat by changing their environment. They get sun on a rock. They burrow into the ground. But reptiles in a cage do not have that option. 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 heaters emit light. Using them to keep a pet reptile warm can be like creating 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, rather than from a heat lamp. On the other hand, reptiles you keep indoors also require supplemental lighting. They need the same wavelengths of light given by sunshine so their bodies can make vitamin D. They need a daytime light along with a supplemental heat source constantly. And different reptiles require different reptile heating and lighting. Here is a rundown of reptile heating and lighting requirements by species.
Ball python heating and lighting: Ball pythons need 8 to 12 hours of light each day, with numerous breaks of 1 to 2 hours during the day. They favor a nocturnal source of light 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 continuous heat, preferably from a ceramic heat source 24 hours a day. They also like to be able to indulge in the "sunlight" you provide with an incandescent bulb, but ensure it's only switched on during the day.
Chameleon heating and lighting: Chameleons definitely needs to 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. Do not provide 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.

Went in with my 6 year old grandson for canned food and treats for my road trip back to Ca with my 11 year old American Bulldog. Good selection, friendly and helpful staff, one of the staff gave my grandson koi food to feed the beautiful, large koi in their fishpond. Overall a good atmosphere. I will be back when I am back in town, recommended the store to my daughter and son-in-law. Oh! and great with children.
Super Friendly staff, very professional, knowledgeable about all the pets, and #1 in customer service!!!
These folks are always friendly and helpful.
