Infrared Basking Spot 50W

Basking Spot

The Infrared Basking Spot emits infrared heat waves and is thus a designated heating bulb. The spot lamp has a special build-in reflector to direct the heat in any direction required. The red glass transmits Infrared waves produced by the special filament of the bulb. The reddish light will not disrupt normal activity during night or day, which makes it an excellent 24 hour heat source. The spot allows you to direct the heat to create a temperature gradient in the terrarium.

Heat regulation!

The Exo Terra® Basking Spots are designed to provide a combination of visual light in combination with the correct infrared-A, or NIR heat radiation. Reptiles perceive this as the ideal basking rays for their thermoregulation, since the sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum, especially in the near-infrared or infrared-A wavelength. Infrared in general, but especially Infrared-A penetrates the skin very well and will aid cell growth, wound-healing, promote the immune system, protect against UV damage, and stimulate many other biological processes.  The Exo Terra® Basking Spots will allow your reptiles to thermoregulate their body temperature to achieve the optimal temperature for enhanced activity and healthy digestion of their food items. Exo Terra® Basking Spots also emit a small portion of UVA rays, which will contribute to reptiles’ physiological well-being and stimulate breeding behavior.

Stimulates natural behavior.

Reptiles are ectotherm and thus tend to thermoregulate their body temperature by moving from the warm end to the cold end of their habitat, and vice versa, in order to keep their body at the preferred temperature. The focussed beam of the Basking Spots allows you to direct the increased light and heat to a specific area to create a basking site. This much warmer basking area will create a temperature gradient in the terrarium for your reptile to thermoregulate. Reptiles perceive the light and radiant heat combination that Basking Spots emit as the ideal heat rays for their thermoregulation, similar to what they experience in nature.  All the Exo Terra® Basking Spots are manufactured in colored glass to increase the transfer of heat waves which makes them highly energy efficient.

Create Heat Gradients.

The Exo Terra® Basking Spots not only create a warmer basking area and increase the ambient air temperature, they also emit essential infrared-A heat radiation, which penetrates the skin much deeper to increase blood flow and aid in natural cellular regeneration.
