Heat and light are both important for the health of reptiles. Naturally, they live in habitats with exposure to different amounts of ultraviolet rays, especially the ones living in deserts. Thus, as a pet owner, it's your responsibility to give your pet reptiles an environment livable for them in all aspects, including the exposure to UVA and also UVB rays.
To do just that, you need to get the Zilla Desert Series Coil Bulb from Pet Store
. This bulb provides more UVB light than regular fluorescent lights. UVB light is essential in maintaining bone health for reptiles - so essential that it ranks up there with food and even water. Aside from UVB, this bulb also provides UVA light which is also necessary for the health of your pet reptiles
, particularly for their scales.
The Zilla Desert Series Coil Bulb also illuminates reptiles' scales much better than any other light. It makes your pets look more vibrant and vivid. All these you get in a bulb with low energy usage - as low as 20 watts!
Even though the Zilla Desert Series Coil Bulb is not your ordinary lighting fixture, it does fit standard sockets so you don't have to worry about installing specialized sockets. You can use the ones already available in your home.
