The Exo Terra Reptile UVB 150 is a bulb that emits a very high level of UVB radiation, similar to that of the sun in deserts. This is because desert reptiles receive more direct sunlight than any other type of reptile. This bulb is also suitable for use in terrariums with denser screen covers, as it ensures sufficient penetration of UVB rays. It is important to note that dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays. The high Vitamin D3 yield index present in the bulb ensures the photosynthesis of vitamin D3, which helps in calcium absorption and prevents metabolic diseases.
The bulb is ideal for all desert-dwelling reptiles and has a high UVB output with a very high D3 conversion. It is effective up to 50 cm (20”) and provides the necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism. It is recommended for use in terrariums with dense screen covers. To achieve optimal visual light output, the bulb can be combined with natural light. This bulb comes with a new spectrum and was formerly known as Repti Glo 10.0.
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.
