Heatlamp danger.

Recommended Posts

One of our 2 Greys was looking a bit peaky so we fixed a heat-lamp to the cage(our house is cold!), one of those old dull emitter jobs. To my horror "Rodney" has managed to fiddle with the the lamp through the bars and has actually put his head on the bulb. Luckily he has a swelling one one side of his head but his eye seems OK. The lamp holder is held in place by a wire at the top. I have now rigged it so that he cannot fiddle with it. A warning for others..........

This is why most herp. keepers use them with special Guards as they do get very hot !!!
