Exo Terra Reptile UVB100 Tropical UVB Lamp
- New Spectrum!
- Ideal for tropical and sub-tropical species
- Optimal levels of UVB up to 15" (40 cm)
The Exo Terra Reptile UVB100 emits optimal levels of UVB, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests or other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive moderate UV radiation due to climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc) that prevent unfiltered sunlight from reaching the reptile’s basking site. The optimal Vitamin D3 yield index ensures vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases.
This compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb features an improved spectrum beneficial to all reptile species. Brightly light up any terrarium or reptile cage while providing your pets with the natural spectrum they require! CFL bulbs fit in most deep dome reptile light fixtures and horizontal canopy fixtures.
UVB lamps should be replaced every 6 months when used 10-12 hours on a daily basis. This Desert Lamp will continue to emit light, but UVB output will diminish after 6 months. UVB is essential for most reptile species.
