    What are the guards called that people use over their heat bulbs in enclosures that have snakes? Also, where do you get them? I have 2 enclosures that I built with ceramic fixtures and I want to put guards over the bulbs to keep whatever snakes end up in the enclosures from getting burned but I have no idea what they are called or how to find them. I'm specifically looking for the ones that you can open without unscrewing them when you need to change a bulb.

    There are plastic ones that are used in the construction industry. You can use those and wrap with hardware cloth or simply build your own with hardware cloth.
    We have a guide here for one.

    not sure if that's the correct size on the link, but you get the idea.

    Its funny the way this sort of random thing is, but there are many manufacturers of these light/heater cages in Europe. They are pretty fancy with hinges and everything, and relatively cheap. Ive never seen one over here though. Odd since there are so many more reptile keepers here. Youd think one of the big companies wouldve come up with this awhile ago.
