Ectothermic reptiles rely on external sources such as the sun for warmth, as they are unable to produce their own body heat. They utilize this heat energy to maintain their bodily functions, digest food and stay healthy. Therefore, heat lamps are necessary to provide the heat required by reptiles.
Designed to create a precise basking site, the Exo Terra Intense Basking Spot is a heat lamp with a tight beam that focuses 35% more heat and light, enabling longer distances between the bulb and the basking spot.
The bulb mimics the sun by primarily producing deep-heating Infrared A (700-1400nm) and Infrared B (1400-3000nm) wavelengths, which maximize basking benefits for your reptile.
To ensure that your pet is receiving the correct temperatures, measure the temperature using the Zoo Med ReptiTemp Digital Infrared Thermometer at their basking area.
This bulb does not produce UVB.
