This bulb does not produce UVB.

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 40w Exo Terra Daytime Heat Lamp is a wide-beam heat bulb that provides gentle heating for species with lower basking temperature requirements. 

We recommend using this bulb with the Exo Terra Compact Top fixture rather than a dome lamp fixture for best results.
