Exo Terra Daytime Heat Reptile Lamp

Is this safe for my leopard gecko? I worry about it getting too hot for him, but most forums I read suggested a 60 watt bulb.

  • For a leopard gecko, the daytime terrarium temperature should range between 78-85 degrees Fahrenheit. The 60 watt lamp would be appropriate is placed around 16-20 inches from the basking area.

  • Yes it is perfectly safe. Leopards do NOT need a heat pad, I have had several leopard geckos, and have 1 now for 4 years and I have never used a heat mat and they are fine without it, no problems urinating or pooping. Hope you enjoy your Gecko

  • Leopard Geckos need belly heat to digest (provided by an under tank heater)
