Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 T8 Light 48in Information

With the Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light from Pet Store, you can now provide your reptiles a form of controlled lighting in a contained environment that will not only make them healthier, but also happier. It is available in a length of forty eight inches, and its appearance is similar to your usual fluorescent light bulbs, with the exception that the light it emits is darker and warmer. The 48-inch light can be installed into larger sizes of reptile cases.

The Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light gives your pets the damp, cool environment that they thrive in, as well as a warmer temperature that they require for their body systems and processes to function. The light from this bulb is also a way to encourage the synthesis of Vitamin D3, which is crucial for your reptile's survival. Since reptiles are cold-blooded creatures, they need the light for warmth to digest their food, to keep their hearts going, their blood circulating, etc. Therefore, the right amount of heat is very important.

The Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light aims to do this. It is very easy to install, and it is durable. You can even control the heat and brightness that this light source gives. Due to its large size, you are sure that all parts of your reptile's home are getting the light and the heat that it requires. The Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 5.0 Light will definitely make your pets shine brighter than ever.

Zoo Med ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Bulbs Provide the exact band of rays within the UVB spectrum for maximum vitamin D3 synthesis and calcium absorption. ReptiSun 5.0 UVB Bulbs supply an amazing 5.0% UVB and up to 30% UVA; outputs active UVB up to 12in from the bulb's surface. Contains the highest amounts of both UVB and UVA wavelengths. The UVB wavelength helps to prevent or reverse Metabolic Bone Disease in green iguanas as well as other species of lizards in captivity. Strengthens and improves shell growth on all captive turtles and tortoises. UVA wavelength increases appetite, physical activity, helps to induce reproductive behaviors and is beneficial to the psychological well-being of captive reptiles and amphibians. Safer than adding powdered or liquid synthetic D3 supplements, as the UVB wavelength allows all reptiles the ability to regulate their own Vitamin D3 levels by endogenous synthesis as they would in nature! Eliminates the risk of vitamin D3 overdose (highly toxic) from synthetic sources. Wavelength penetrates a full 10-12in from the bulb's surface. We use pure quartz glass sleeves. The bulb's UVA/UVB wavelength remains effective for 1 to 1-1/2 years. (Replace bulbs yearly). Use with lizards (other than iguanas), to help prevent bone problems, as well as turtles and tortoises to improve shell growth. Increases appetite, activity and breeding. Bulbs are compatible with the following fixtures: Slimline Reptile Fixture Combo-Light The Slider Reptile Hood Flourescent Strip Lights
