- New Spectrum!
- Ideal for desert setups or taller terrariums
- Enhanced UVB penetration distance
- Comparable to 12.0/12% or higher UVB lamps
The Exo Terra UVB 200 is designed to simulate natural conditions for reptiles with very high UVB requirements like diurnal reptiles from desert environments. Use this lamp for large or tall enclosures. Suitable for tortoises, bearded dragons, monitor lizards, uromastyx and other species that can be found basking in full sunlight. The UVB200 is a CFL lamp available in 26 watts and 13 watts. Use the 26 watt bulb for maximum light output through screen top terrarium covers.
The Exo Terra Reptile UVB200 emits the ideal UVB spectrum for optimal Vitamin D3 photosynthesis. The Reptile UVB200 Bulb is especially designed to simulate conditions for reptiles with very high UV requirements, like diurnal reptiles from desert environments. These areas receive direct unfiltered sunlight with high levels of UVB. The significantly high Vitamin D3 yield index results in increased vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases. The extended UVB penetration makes this bulb the ideal choice for taller terrariums or terrariums with denser screens.
UVB lamps should be replaced every 6 months when used 10-12 hours on a daily basis. This High Intensity Lamp will continue to emit light, but UVB output will diminish after 6 months. UVB is essential for most reptile species.
