The Exo Terra Reptile UVB 150 is a lighting fixture that produces a high level of UVB output similar to that found in deserts where reptiles are highly exposed to UV radiation. This bulb can also be used in terrariums with denser screen covers that can filter out up to 50% of UVB rays, ensuring sufficient penetration. The high Vitamin D3 yield index allows for vitamin D3 photosynthesis, which helps with calcium absorption and prevents metabolic diseases.
It is ideal for all desert-dwelling reptiles and effective up to 50 cm (20”) in distance. The UVB rays it provides are necessary for optimal calcium metabolism. This product is recommended for use in terrariums with dense screen covers, and when combined with Natural Light, it can provide optimal visual light output.
UVB is a vital wavelength that is naturally present in sunlight, and provides numerous benefits for nearly all reptiles. It is essential in maintaining the health and strength of your pet's bones, and contributes to various other vital functions
Each reptile species has unique UVB requirements. It's important to research your specific species to determine the necessary UV index (UVI) in their basking area.
