Zilla Desert Series T5 Fluorescent Light Bulb (20 Inch, 12 Watt Lamp) Information

Reptiles as pets are definitely exciting and unique in their exoticism However, with exoticism comes special needs that are different from the usual pet cats or dogs. Many reptiles call the desert their natural habitat, so naturally, many domesticated reptiles used as pets come originally from the desert as well. Out in the desert, these animals get nutrients from the sun, so sunlight is also essential to them, much like water and food are. Thus, you need to give your reptilian pets exposure to sunlight that is similar to what they got when they were still living in the desert. Obviously, you won't get that from the sunlight reaching the city or the suburbs.

Fortunately, you can get that specific desert-sun-like light from the Zilla Desert Series T5 Fluorescent Light Bulb from Pet Store. This lamp gives off strong UVB light, thanks to its bulb, a Desert 50 that can emit 50 µW/cm2. The light produced by this lamp can renew the strength your pet reptiles normally get from the desert sun. Aside from the health benefits, the light of this bulb improves the coloring of most reptiles, making them look so much more vibrant and vivid.

The Zilla Desert Series T5 Fluroescenet Light Bulb can fit in standard fluorescent fixtures.

Zilla Desert Series T5 20 inch Bulb 12W When it comes to the bone health of a desert reptile, the extra daily dose of UVB light provided by a Desert 50 bulb (50 microwatts per second/cm2) is as essential as proper food and water for long term strength. The Desert 50 family of bulbs also provide needed UVA light, plus visible-spectrum illumination that makes skin coloration more vivid and viewable. Get all this in a family of high-efficiency bulbs designed to fit most major fluorescent fixture types (compact, T5 and T8). Incandescent lamp users also have the option of a Coil Bulb that screws into a standard light socket. Desert 50 bulbs are designed for 3500 hours or twelve full months of average use.• Delivers UVB light levels essential for desert reptile health• Full-spectrum illumination accents subtle pet colors• Bring a ray of desert sunshine to arid reptile habitats• Size- 12 watt T5 20 inch / Dimensions- L 20.50in x W 2.00in x H 1.00in

Comments: The round Zilla combo light and heat lamp has not worked well for us. The heating element in the center of the dome has caused the plug and wiring for the round flourescent tube to overheat and deform. As a result, the flourescent tubes burned out within a couple of months. Now we can no longer get the flourescent light to work at all and are left with two new but unusable lights. We're still using the unit as a heat source, but have added a separate straight-tube, full-spectrum light. Nice idea, Zilla, but needs to be redisigned.
