So unless they have to have a most specific night temp go with normal light bulbs.
You can't beleive everything you hear. I've also heard dogs can't see red but they react to the lazer thingy too.
Now that doesn't mean they aren't colour blind, they just may not see the colour properly, but seeing as snakes have a similar eye construction as cats my thoughts are that they're not colour blind as cats are not colour blind.
