Zoo Med Reptisun T5 HO UVB 10.0 Light Information




Reptiles need external heating for internal biological processes. If you live in the Northern areas of the United States that do not get much sunlight, you definitely need to look into artificial lighting to give your reptile pet the heat that it needs. However, reptiles do not just need regular heat lamps that produce visible light and ambient heat. They also need light that helps them produce vitamin D3. Just like in humans, reptiles produce their own vitamin D. Their bodies produce this compound when natural light source hits their skin.

Vitamin D3 is needed for bone health and bone formation. It is a crucial vitamin. Without this vitamin, both humans and reptiles and other animals develop soft bone and could experience bone damage. The lack of vitamin D causes rickets in humans. What kind of proper lighting is needed by reptiles for optimal vitamin D synthesis? There are two kinds of lights: ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B. UVB light is the portion of visible light that triggers vitamin D synthesis. This is obviously unavailable in an indoor setting if you are using regular fluorescent lights or regular heating lamps for your reptile pets.

Thankfully, there are reptile lights available in the market that have UVB light. One of these is Zoo Med Reptisun UVB 10.0 HO Light from Pet Store. This light emits UVB at the right levels to trigger vitamin D synthesis in your reptilian pets. It is a powerful light that also produces visible light output. If you are looking for an effective UVB solution for your terrarium, try the Zoo Medial Reptisun UVB 10.0 HO Light today.

All lamps are T8 size.

Zoo Med Iguana Light 5.0 UVB Fluorescent 15in Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 High Output UVB Bulb is ideal for reptiles housed in larger vivaria whose natural environment and behavior patterns necessitate increased UVB exposure. Features: Provides an effective UVB source without providing excess heat; great for old world chameleons and other reptiles requiring increased UVB exposure without higher temperatures; allows UVB assisted photo conversion up to 20in from the lamp`s surface (compared to 12in on the Reptisun 5.0); allows turtles and tortoises the proper UVB wavelength. Did you know that taller cages, screen cages, and tank covers can reduce the amount of UVB rays getting to your reptile? The solution is here: The Reptisun 10.0! This fluorescent bulb features more UVB output than any other lamp! Effective at distance up to 20in, compared to 12in with the 5.0 UVB. This lamp will provide the UVB your pet needs in any cage-situation for up to a full year before needing replacement. Give your reptile the healthy UVB it needs with the Reptisun 10.0!

All lamps are T8 size.
