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 Swamp Basking Spot is a heat lamp specially designed for use in terrariums where it is likely to get misted or splashed with water. Standard heat bulbs are likely to shatter or experience reduced life under these conditions, but the Swamp Basking Spot is designed to be durable, creating a safer basking source for your pet!
