does red cellophane over a light cage the same as infra red? not disturbing the snake
i have what i think is called a gu10 (light fitting the one thats not a screw in bulb) and my question is
because snakes cannot see the red spectrum of light(correct me if im wrong here please!)if i could use some red cellophane over the light cage to produce a red spectrum light so as not to disturb the snake during the night and provide heat during the night aswell
any help would be greatly appreciatedapply yourself to supply your wealth the only limitations are those you place upon yourself
Just buy red bulbs
There have been a few discussions on here about red lights. As far as I know, there is no proof that they can't see red. If you want no light then I'd suggest painting the globes black with a heat proof paint.Knowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself

Ceramic bulbs are great for heating with no light.x 4 kids, x 2 Womas, x 1 Olive, x 2 Bredlis, x 1 Rough Scaled Python, x 2 Water Pythons, x 1 Galah, x 2 Budgies.
Miss my gliders terribly, wish QLD would change its laws.

Snakes can see the red spectrum in light,.
why do u want to dull the light? Is it for night?
Canines can't see the red spectrum of light.

Probably easier to switch the fitting to an E27, and then buy a night glow bulb (purple / black). They put out a lot less light than the red ones.

if i could switch the fitting then i would have already done so.....stoopid store bought reptile tanks.... cant change the fitting!!!
also Their retinas lack a specific "red receptor" in the choroid layer of the retina
lol the red spectrum of light is not really that noticeable by snakes say compared to a dasylight bulb
i have my coastal; 24/7 on a n infrared light and he seems fine but i was lucky it had a e27 fitting...

Humans can't see infra red light either,... So how would you know if it's an infrared?
those infrared light heaters are just red light... And the reptiles can see it,
