- Provides UVB, UVA and visible light
Self ballasted compact compact fluorescent UVB lamp for all tropical species of reptiles and amphibians. The ReptiSun Compact Fluorescent lamp uses a special UVB transmitting quartz glass for maximum UVB penetration. Cool burning compact fluorescent bulb screws into standard threaded sockets, eliminating the need for a separate ballast. Lamp can be oriented either vertically or horizontally in your reptile hood or clamp lamp fixture. UVB emissions help prevent or reverse metabolic bone disease and UVA increases feeding, mating, and other natural behaviors.
When to replace your lamp: This lamp will provide your animals with beneficial UVB for a period of 12 months when used 10 to 12 hours per day. Record date of first use on lamp and replace after 12 months.
