Exo Terra Reptile UVB 100 Tropical Terrarium Bulb (formerly known as Repti Glo 5.0 Compact) emits optimal levels of UVB, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests or other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive moderate UV radiation due to climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc.) that prevent unfiltered sunlight from reaching the reptile's basking site. Energy saving bulb uses only 13 watts and screws into any incandescent socket, including hoods and clamp lamps.
