Exo Terra Daytime Heat Lamp, 40w
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.
This bulb does not produce UVB.
