This bulb does not produce UVB.

Reptiles are poikilotherms, which means that they must regulate their body temperature by moving between areas of warmth and cold. Being able to maintain the right body temperature is critical for digesting their food, fighting off disease, and generally maintain bodily functions. The best way to provide an area of warmth in your reptile's enclosure is with a high-quality heat lamp.

The Zoo Med Repti Basking Spot Lamp is an incandescent spot-style heat bulb with a double reflector design that focuses 35% more heat and light than regular spot lamps.

Each bulb is warrantied by the manufacturer to last at least 3 months, or roughly 2,000 hours.

Buy 2 at a time to cluster your heat lamps together for a bigger basking area, or to have a spare for backup!

How to use:

Install your Zoo Med Repti Basking Spot Lamp in a ceramic-socket dome lamp fixture rated above the bulb's wattage. If the bulb is mounted inside the enclosure, use a bulb cage to prevent burns through direct contact. Mount the lamp on the extreme left or right of the enclosure to create a usable temperature gradient. We recommend using a cluster of 2 or more bulbs for evenly heating larger reptiles.

To maximize bulb lifespan, wear gloves when installing the bulb to prevent skin oils from getting on the glass. Avoid unnecessary jostling, especially when the lamp is turned on.

For best results, use the Zoo Med Digital Thermometer to measure the temperature at your pet's basking area to make sure they are getting the right temps for their needs. Place the probe of the thermometer on the basking surface for an accurate reading. If basking temperature is too cool, you will need a higher wattage bulb. If too hot, use a plug-in lamp dimmer to reduce bulb output. 

For maximum lifespan, plug into a surge protector like the Zilla 24/7 Digital Timer Power Center

The Zoo Med Repti Basking Spot Lamp is a narrow-beam spot lamp. For best results, use at a distance of at least 8" to prevent the development of dangerous hot spots which may burn your reptile. For species longer than 8" snout to vent length, or 8" coiled diameter, we recommend using a cluster of multiple bulbs placed close together. This more evenly heats your reptile's body, promoting even circulation and optimal thermoregulation!

Absolutely amazing value...

I've definitely paid at least $100 more for enclosures not nearly as well designed and packaged as this one. All my future enclosures will be from Dubia.

Go to heat bulbs

I always buy my heat bulbs from dubiaroaches because the price is unbeatable. Other pet stores sell them at much higher, but no one beats these prices. I always make sure to buy more whenever I run out. A great staple to add to your order. These bulbs do a perfect job at providing my bearded dragons with a nice and warm basking spot, and they last months!
