Standard terrarium bulbs can’t deliver the heightened levels of UVB radiation native to a tropical habitat, leaving rainforest reptiles deficient in a vital component of healthy bone development. Tropical 25 Bulbs correct this deficiency with a full dosage of UVB along with essential UVA light.
UVB light is as essential as proper food and water when it comes to the bone health of tropical reptiles.
Also provide needed UVA light, plus visible-spectrum illumination to make subtle skin coloration more vivid and viewable.
Tropical 25 UVB bulbs (25 microwatts per second/cm2) in 13W or 20W sizes are designed for 3500 hours or 12 full months of average use.
Ideal for tropical and temperate dwelling reptiles including Anoles; Day & Tokay Geckos, Iguanas, Basilisks, Chameleons, Chinese Water Dragons, Tegus, Red-Eared Sliders, Red Foot Tortoises and Eastern Box Turtles.
