Provide your tropical reptiles and amphibians essential UVA light designed to withstand wet conditions with the Exo Terra Swamp Basking Splash Proof Reptile Spot Lamp. Reptiles need UVA light to stimulate activity, encourage natural foraging and aid in digestion. Regular light bulbs do not produce UVA and lack of it can cause illness and even death. The Exo Terra Swamp Basking Splash Proof Reptile Spot Lamp is a splash- and mist-resistant basking spot lamp with an extra-strong neodymium glass outer sleeve. It is designed for use in aquatic or extremely humid terrarium set-ups, where high humidity or accidental water spillage could cause a regular basking lamp to burn out or shatter.

So I bought this bulb for my red-eared sliders. They absolutely loved it! They would sit up on their floating rock and completely spread out all their limbs from their shells. However, a little after a month the bulb burnt out. I do understand sometimes it is just that specific lightbulb so I will be purchasing another one to see if this happens again.

When I got my box it was destroyed and when I opened the box inside it was ripped in pieces. I dig into the pieces and found the light bulb. Lucky, it wasn’t broken. Don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything else from here
Turtles love it

My turtles love it, it works great and very affordable I will be purchasing more.
Helps me to always be prepared for a burned out bulb.

Just what I need so that I can be stocked up & ready for the next burn out. Prices great as well!

I have gone through hundreds of basking bulbs over the past decade of owning beardies, turtles, frogs, etc. but this one seemed to last the longest for my aquatic turtles. One bulb lasted 3 months before burning out. A bit pricey, but it serves its purpose.
It didn't feel like it made the basking area super warm but it did enough to dry out the turtle shells in their basking dock.

Kids use the light for their turtle tank 24/7 so we keep spare at the best price I've found yet.........
Doesn't last long

I love the price but I have had other lights last much much longer. The last 2 only lasted a few weeks.

I thought it was a larger bulb, but it fit my heat lamp. Tyrone my turtle is happy
