I love this heat lamp. I just bought a ball python and her cage needs to maintain heat on one side to 93° and the cooler side at 87°. This lamp is amazing and does the job. I love it so much and how little energy it takes and how easy it is to just out a light bulb in and then plug it in and you are set to go. It's very nice quality and I love how it came with an extra clip/clamp so that you can hook it to something and you don't need it right on top of the cage.
