If you have a curious reptile that likes to explore, a reptile light guard is a cheap investment to protect them from harm. Most reptile light guards cost very little and are reusable for years to come, meaning that you may even be able to reuse your light guard for multiple reptiles.
What are the main types of reptile light guards?
Each light guard is designed to protect your reptile from a specific type of light, such as tube lights or compact lights. Be sure to check the description and dimensions of your reptile light guard to ensure it is capable of completely encaging your light source before making a purchase.
What should I look for?
Apart from the dimensions of your reptile light guard, there isn’t much more to think about. You will need to install the guard, often by screwing it to a wall or ceiling around your light, if this is the case make sure there’s enough space in your enclosure for the light guard and the fixtures in your enclosure.
