The Basking Spot Globe is a broad spectrum UVA daylight bulb for creating a basking area for your reptile. This incandescent globe stimulates daylight and produces heat, increasing the ambient temperature. The UVA benefits the animal in that it increases appetite and activity. The reflective inner glass directs and intensifies the heat and light downwards. Alternate this globe with the Infrared, Oz Purple or Oz Moon globes to create a natural day and night cycle for your animal.
