Pretty much, the specialty reptile incandescent bulbs just have coatings on them that filter certain wavelengths of light, either to enhance the reptiles' colors when we look at them, or so they cannot see the light so it doesn't disrupt day/night cycles (the red and "black" ones). Reptile bulbs aren't held to the safety and quality standards that bulbs made for humans are and tend to have much higher defect rates. I buy "human" bulbs unless I need nighttime illumination.
