I bought a uvb light bulb that is 70 watts & i have a regular walmart hood lamp that says 40 watts max would the lamp be ok to use?

No, it will get hotter than the recommended 40 watt. Fire hazzard.

Using a 70-watt UVB light bulb on a hood lamp that requires the use of a bulb with a maximum of 40 watts wouldn't be a good idea. If you need to get a brighter light for the lamp, try out a compact fluorescent bulb with a higher lumen output instead.
