The lamp for my turtle tank is giving off this horrible smell (at least i think it\'s the lamp). It smells like a chemical or maybe a gas--I can\'t tell. What is it and will it hurt my turtles? I have it turned off until I find out what\'s causing it.

Some times the cords on the heat lamps can start to get a little hot and start to burn a little bit check this and also try checking the bulb and see if the contacts on the socket are cleared off.

if it only smells when the lamp is on, check to make sure that nothing is stuck on/in the lamp that is burning. If there\'s not, i\'d buy a new lamp. You can never be too safe.
