Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot, 100w
As poikilotherms, reptiles are extremely dependent on having access to a sun-like source of heat where they can warm their bodies as needed to regulate their metabolism. The purpose of a basking lamp is to simulate the heat produced by the sun, and thus support reptiles' thermoregulatory needs. Both diurnal and nocturnal reptiles should have access to a heat lamp and basking temperatures appropriate to their species.
The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot is a narrow-beam spot lamp. For best results, use a cluster of multiple bulbs placed close together to evenly heat your reptile's body, promoting even circulation and optimal thermoregulation.
We recommend using this bulb with the Exo Terra Glow Light, Medium.
