Exo Terra Light Dome, 7"
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.
Heat bulbs can't be mounted in just any lamp fixture, however. To reduce the risk of fire, and maximize bulb longevity and output, it's best to mount your bulb in a ceramic-socket dome fixture like the Exo Terra Light Dome. This fixture features a mirror-polish reflector to increase light output by up to 100%.
To increase the size of your reptile's basking area, use multiple heat lamps.
Maximum bulb wattage: 150w
When used with Exo Terra Terrariums, please use with the Exo Terra Light Bracket.
