Exo Terra Intense Basking Spot, 75w
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.
What makes the Exo Terra Intense Basking Spot different from is designed with a tighter beam designed to be used in taller enclosures, allowing for longer distances between the bulb and the basking spot while still creating viable basking temperatures.
We recommend using this bulb with the Exo Terra Glow Light, Small. To create a larger basking area, use a cluster of multiple heat bulbs.
This bulb does not produce UVB.
