Heating bulb question

Postby Emerald14 » Wed Dec 11, 2019 6:04 pm

I am using a 150 watt thrive basking bulb. The highest point for my dragon to bask under is slightly to the side of the bulb and ranges from 105-110 degrees (I am using an infrared laser gun). Is it normal that the far side of her enclosure is only 75-76 degrees Fahrenheit??

Yeah that isn't out of the ordinary depending on how well insulated (or not-insulated) your enclosure is. Especially if it's an open or screen top tank.

That's a similar gradient to what I have in my enclosure (Glass, no top).
