We love these 120 watt Chromalux HALOGEN basking FLOOD LIGHT bulbs!
Perfect for BIG Snakes, Lizards and Tortoises.
The ideal Zoo Exhibit display basking bulb.
They throw the heat of a conventional 150w bulb... so you get the heat you need but save on electricity.
Plus, these are MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE to use in the long run because they last 4000 - 5000 hours!
(Compared to 1000 - 2000 hours for a regular tungsten filament bulb.)
These frosted FLOOD LIGHT bulbs give a nice warm balanced light and direct all of the light and heat downward. Unlike a regular type "bulb" shaped light bulb.
They are made with pure elemental Neodymium glass.
That is what gives them their unique, slightly sky blue-ish violet hue.
What this Neodymium does is IMPROVE the spectrum of the light so that colors "pop" and the light has less of a stale yellow-y cast.
Plus, the Halogen bulb generates more Infra Red Rays that heat the animals better.
This 120 watt R40 bulb is perfect for all reptiles and fits LARGE dome lights. This is a big bulb so use in a dome with a porcelain socket.
