This bulb works great. It doubles as a basking bulb and a UVB bulb. My blue tongue skink loves laying under it and soaking up all the sun and heat.

I hear a lot of complaints about this item, but I’ve never had an issue with it. These bulbs last me about 7-8 months and provide a perfect combination of heat and light for my chameleon :)
What I needed

This is the bulb that my vet recommended for my tortoise. Although it's very expensive for just one light bulb, it was cheaper here than any of my local pet stores. I like that there is a bigger selection of things here on Chewy that i can't find in the pet store.

I literally had this bulb in for less than one day, and it has already blown out.
Worked great for the 1 hour it was on, though!

I have bought this brand of light bulb for my dragons before, but within a week of buying it it burnt out and I've only bought three of these so far.
