    Hey, I’m really not sure if this is the right place to ask this or if it’s ok to ask this here but I’ve gotten two wonderful leopard geckos and I am a bit unsure about the heating lamp. I’ve looked online and can not find the answer to my question: how long does it take a heating lamp to reach full heat??
    I really want to know because I’m too nervous to leave it on unattended because I don’t know how hot it will get, I really need to know how long it takes to reach its full heat.

    Thanks so much! I just made another trip to the pet store to get a lower wattage bulb which is working much better! I’m finding it a bit confusing because there is a lot on contradictory information online and some places say 90% of what you read on leopard geckos on line isn’t true.

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
