- Comparable to a 10.0 or 10% UVB lamp
The Exo Terra UVB 150 (formerly Repti Glo 10.0) emits very high levels of UVB similar to sunlight suitable for desert habitats, or reptiles naturally found basking in full sunlight. The UVB150 CFL bulb is available in 13 watts and 26 watts, which emits more light and UVB to your pet rather than being blocked by screen tops. Dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays.
The Exo Terra Reptile UVB150 has a very high UVB output similar to sunlight in deserts. These locations receive more direct sunlight, therefore desert reptiles are more exposed to UV radiation than any other type of reptile. This bulb can also be used on terrariums with denser screen covers to ensure sufficient UVB penetration. The high Vitamin D3 yield index ensures vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases.
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.
