The Exo Terra® TerraSky UV LED Terrarium Light is a highly energy efficient terrarium light with a fully customizable light spectrum, capable of replicating various natural environments. The high intensity, horizontal orientation, and wide beam angle of the TerraSky UV LED ensures that a larger area is covered with optimal Light, UVA and UVB rays. The high light intensity in combination with UVA rays stimulate the animal’s appetite, activity, and reproductive behavior. UVA also reduces stress and contributes to the animal’s overall wellbeing. The UVB rays provide a high Vitamin D3 yield index and ensure optimal vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and help prevent metabolic diseases.
The Exo Terra® TerraSky UV LED Terrarium Light uses very durable LED chips that produce Light, UVA and UVB rays for up to 20,000 hours or 4+ years!
The TerraSky UV comes with an easy-to-use remote control that allows you to fully customize the light spectrum. The 6500K Bright White, UVA and UVB LEDs can be adjusted with 10% increments, allowing you to tailor the output according to your animal’s needs. The convenient preset timer settings of 8, 12, and 14 hours, include a Sunrise and Sunset function, and make it easy to adjust the daytime duration to mimic the seasonal cycles. The TerraSky UV comes with 3 preset Sunlight and 2 Moonlight settings which allow you to adjust the intensity of the daylight or nightlight with the simple push of a button. The Remote Control also features 3 memory buttons to store your own custom settings. The TerraSky UV also features a dedicated biofluorescence button that will make your plants, mushrooms, invertebrates, reptiles or amphibians that have biofluorescent properties, glow up at night.
With its 51 Bright White 6500K LEDs, the TerraSky UV LED Terrarium Light is ideal for planted setups, bioactive terrariums, paludariums and Aquatic Turtle terrariums. The high light intensity and enhanced penetration ensure that the light reaches all layers of the terrarium, resulting in sustained lush plant growth. Orchids, Bromeliads, Tillandsias (air plants), carnivorous plants, mosses, lichen and aquatic plants all thrive under the TerraSky UV LED Terrarium Light’s strong Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR). The 120-degree light dispersion provides a nice even illumination and covers the complete area to avoid dark spots.
Providing a Full Spectrum Lighting is key to the success of any terrarium. From a functional perspective, light quality affects plant growth. From an aesthetic point of view, healthier plants under better lighting mean more visual enjoyment. With its high visible light output and UVA rays, the TerraSky UV contributes to the physiological wellbeing of your reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates and lets them experience and perceive the colours in their environment more naturally.
The waterproof housing of the TerraSky UV is rated IP54 for use in humid environments.

Prevents Metabolic Bone Disease!
Metabolic bone disease (MBD) is a common ailment among captive reptiles, arising from mineral imbalances, notably in calcium, and a deficiency of vitamin D3. Recognizable symptoms encompass weakened bones, tremors, and lethargy. One pivotal factor contributing to MBD is the insufficient exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. By incorporating Ultraviolet LED Lights, you can create an environment where your reptiles can naturally synthesize Vitamin D3, promoting optimal calcium metabolism. This process not only stimulates vitally important biological processes but also serves as a preventive measure against metabolic bone disease (MBD), mirroring the conditions they would experience in the wild.
The absorption of UVB light, especially when complemented by Infrared-A heat rays, significantly contributes to reptile health by facilitating the synthesis of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 not only aids calcium metabolism, vital for bone structure, but also regulates the proper functioning of their most important organs, preventing cardiovascular diseases and stimulating the immune system. UV rays also constitute a highly effective defence system against viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Reduces Energy Costs.
Ultraviolet LED Lights surpass traditional UV Lights in energy efficiency while still replicating the natural UVA and UVB radiation reptiles experience in their native environments. With their impressive energy efficiency and extended lifespan, Ultraviolet LED Lights not only contribute to lower energy bills but also boast a reduced environmental footprint. Opting for these LED lights reflects a wise and eco-conscious lighting decision.
