The Exo Terra Swamp Basking Spot is a basking spot lamp that is resistant to splashes and mist, specially designed to be used in highly humid or aquatic terrarium set-ups. Regular basking lamps may break or burn out due to accidental water spillage, but this lamp can withstand such conditions.
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.
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.
