Reptile UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamp 10.0

$20.00

We stock two sizes of UVB Compact Fluorescent Lamps.

The Compact Fluorescent Lamp 5.0 has a moderate to high UVB output, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests and other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive less UV radiation because of the many climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc) that prevent direct sunlight from reaching them or their basking sites.

* Ideal for all tropical and sub-tropical reptiles
* High UVB output
* Effective up to 30 cm (12")
* Provides necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism
* Stimulates appetite, activity and reproductive behaviour through UVA radiation

The Compact Fluorescent Lamp 10.0 has a very high UVB output similar to that associated with desert environments. Desert locations receive more direct sunlight than any other because of fewer clouds, less air humidity and no plants or trees to provide shade. Therefore desert reptiles are more exposed to UV radiation than any other type of reptile. This bulb can also be used on screened terrariums or terrariums with dense screen covers to ensure UVB penetration. Dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays.
