The Exo Terra Heat Wave Lamp radiates heat in the same way the sun does, except without the visible light, meaning you can use it to heat your reptile’s habitat even at night.
The long wave infra-red heat created by the Exo Terra Heat Wave Lamp works efficiently at creating basking heat for your reptiles, heating them from above like the sun would in the wild, but without upsetting their day/night cycle.
As well as the basking temperature felt by your reptile when he or she decides to sit right under the bulb, it also increases the ambient warmth in the terrarium.
The Infra-red heat acts like the sun, penetrating the scales and skin tissue and warming their blood, keeping your reptile’s metabolism running at optimum levels for good health.
This helps health and healing as it widens the blood vessels and increases blood circulation.
So the bulb doesn’t get too hot we recommend the pulse thermostat.
Please note the wire clamp lamps will not fit these bulbs
