Reptiles and UVB Report


        "Recently, the zoo's reptile keepers ran some tests in order to measure the UVB output of fluorescent lamps (bulbs) used in some of the exhibits and holding cages... Using a UVB meter, the staff found that the Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 High Output UVB Lamp provided high levels of UVB, with the Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Lamp being valuable in some situations as well.
        The Staten Island Zoo currently uses the Zoo Med 10.0 High Output UVB Lamp with a number of lizards, including such sensitive species as the crevice spiny swift (Sceloporus poinsetti) and the Texas horned lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum)."

We've used ZOO MED as a secondary source of UVB for our Uromastyx pair. ZOO MED has excellent quality and much longer life span when compared to their competition especially in UVB and heat or infrared bulbs.

Although not necessary if feeding the right foods powdered with Miner-Al, and Uromastyx dust, we provide it in a part of the enclosure to allow them to access the UVB if desired, while also giving them plenty of tank to move away from it and regulate their own exposure to the UVB. Nothing could be worse than MBD for your reptiles.
