Reptiles need UVB for vitamin D production and calcium metabolism. Without UVB, reptiles can develop Metabolic Bone Disease in 6 months or less. This bulb, along with proper temperatures, will enable your reptiles to make vitamin D and process calcium from their diet.
Reptiles and amphibians can see things that humans can't. UVA is part of the rainbow of colors that reptiles can see. UVA helps to increase activity levels, appetite, and reproductive behaviors. Without UVA, they are colorblind.
For use in fixtures rated for T8 lamps.
This lamp emits beneficial UVB up to 12" inches from the surface of the bulb. Glass and plastic filter out UVB; there should be no glass or plastic between the lamp and your reptile. Fine mesh blocks up to 50% of light and UVB. This should be taken into consideration when determining lamp distance. Always have lamp at 6" away from your animal.
