Exo Terra Reptile UVB 100 Compact Lamps are a good sized and self-ballasted fluorescent bulb ideal for rainforest reptiles.
It is recommended to combine a high UVB output (Reptile UVB 150) with a very high visual light output (Natural Light) for optimal results. Fluorescent bulbs do not provide sufficient heat. A separate heat source is required in addition (ex: incandescent basking lamp).
