One of the most commonly used heating sources. Provides light and heat which makes it an excellent heat source for use during daytime hours. During night time hours a heat mat or infrared lamp can be used if required.The RepTech basking lamps are fitted with special Neodymium glass and as a result the RepTech basking lamps also produce UVA light! Most reptiles have four color receptors in the eye, humans only have three. UVA light falls within the visible light spectrum for reptiles. Without UVA their surroudings will seem dull and unnatural. To provide a more natural environment for your beloved pet and encourage natural behaviour it is essential to provide lighting that includes UVA. RepTech basking lamps have an integrated reflector to direct heat down.
