The Exo Terra Reptile UVB 200 bulb emits the ideal UVB spectrum for optimal Vitamin D3 photosynthesis. It is especially designed to simulate conditions for reptiles with very high UV requirements, like diurnal reptiles from desert environments that 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. This bulb is ideal for desert set-ups or taller terrariums due to its extended UVB penetration, which maximizes calcium absorption and helps prevent metabolic bone disease. For optimal visual light output, it can be combined with Natural Light or Reptile Vision.
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.
