Hello all,

I was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice on the best heating set-up to use for an adult king snake. I have a vivarium that's about 4x2ft. To date I have been using incandescent spot bulbs, but fewer places seem to be selling them now. Also, they seem to blow pretty quickly!

I'm wondering what a suitable upgrade might be? Do I go with a mat and/or bulb? If I use a thermostatically controlled bulb, what sort would be best (both thermostat and bulb type). I'm a bit confused over ceramic bulbs in particular. Would I need an additional light source if I used one of these?

Any help would be really appreciated!
