True red glass, not painted or coated (Except the 250 w, which is lacquered)! Zoo Med’s spot reflector focuses more heat into your enclosure and minimizes nighttime glare. The ideal 24-hour heat source for all types of reptiles, amphibians, birds, or small animals. Very little visible light is provided so as not to disturb your animal's sleep patterns. Excellent for nocturnal viewing of all types of captive animals.
