I'm getting a new leopard tortoise, and I had a question on lighting. I have a UVB tube that's placed on the top of the set up during the day. I'm trying to get a heat source that's effective, as well as cheap. I wanted to know if anyone know the difference between a reptile heat light such as a Powersun UV 100w Mercury vapor lamp or a heat bulb found at stores like Home Depot, maybe similar ones to what's used with baby chickens. I live in California and it's not very hummid. Also, It's hard to withhold heat unless I place the cage in a room without Windows.
