The Exo Terra Reptile UVB 200 (26 Watts) bulb should be combined with Natural Light or Reptile Vision for optimal visual light output. This bulb emits the ideal UVB spectrum for optimal Vitamin D3 photosynthesis and 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. Additionally, the extended UVB penetration makes this bulb the ideal choice for taller terrariums or terrariums with denser screens. This bulb helps to prevent metabolic bone disease and is ideal for desert set-ups or taller terrariums. It has a very high D3 Yield Index, increases Vitamin D3 photosynthesis, maximizes calcium absorption, and has enhanced UVB penetration distance.
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.
