For larger reptiles such as Bearded Dragons or Uromastyx, a secondary basking spot lamp like an Exo terra Sun Glo Tight Beam might be needed to maintain their overall body temperature nice and hot, just how they like it!
In the wild, your desert dwelling reptile would receive a huge amount of warmth and visible light from the Sun, and to allow them to have a healthy life style, this is easily replicated with a second spot lamp.
