Yeah I agree. How can heat from above or below be different? Heat is heat is heat. But I am eager to see other responses as for all I know, I may be way off on this one. But sun is from above, and the earth does cool slowly...making one think belly heat is used a lot! But who knows....snakes bask out on roads too.
I personally do not like lights only because for most my snakes it makes humidity a pain, and I have to either get red bulbs or throw a timer on them, then ad a heat pad at night. So for me, heating from below works better overall. But I have used lights in the past, and I haven't really seen much of a difference aside from my own amount of maintanence. If I had all overhead lights, I don't think I could have as many snakes as I do now.
