Ensure your desert reptile has proper UVB levels with the Exo Terra Desert UVB 150 Reptile Lamp. Reptiles require UVB light to absorb and metabolize calcium which is essential for healthy bone growth and preventing metabolic diseases. Exo Terra Desert UVB 150 Reptile Lamp has a very high UVB output similar to natural desert environments where there is more direct sunlight and more UV exposure. This bulb can also be used on screened terrariums or terrariums with dense screen covers to ensure UVB penetration.

I've always gotten this brand of UVB. UVB bulbs should be getting changed every 6 months; I have never had a problem with this specific bulb. If they burn out it means it was just a faulty one. I love Exo Terra as well. They have a lot of high quality reptile merchandise.

I don't have any natural lights come into my room where the animals are, so I have to use bulbs to mimic them.
Since using this bulb to make up for the lack of proper UVs *we also use another bulb for UV/heat* I've noticed our snake it looking and acting healthier.
Perfect Just Big!

This compact light is awesome because it's much cheaper and easier than using a strip light uvb, the only thing is the actual light bulb is larger than you'd think and is longer than a regular light fixture so make sure you get a bigger light fixture when you get this bulb!
Not The Best

I wouldn't recommend this brand. Me and my bf have bought this light from both Chewy and pet stores and they always burn out within a week or even a few days. I've switched to ZooMed lights which have worked a lot better for me.

Awesome Bulb for the price

After our light burnt out for our tortoise we went to local pet stores for a replacement uvb light. After checking 3 different ones I wasn't paying $20+ for it, found the same one on Chewy for under $10 and got it the following day!!!
Only lasted a couple weeks

Unhappy with item
on Mar 24, 2018
This is the first time I bought this light threw chewy and it didn’t even last a month and it burnt out. I usually can get 6 months out of my reptile lights and i have to change them because it is time not because they are burnt out. My guesses this was sitting in wearhouse too long
