Reptile UVB100 Linear 36W

Long-lasting Tropical Terrarium Bulb

The Exo Terra Reptile UVB100 emits optimal levels of UVB, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests or other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive moderate UV radiation due to climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc) that prevent unfiltered sunlight from reaching the reptile’s basking site. The optimal Vitamin D3 yield index ensures vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases.

The longer sizes can be placed on multiple terrariums.

Pet care bulb for use with Reptiles, Amphibians and Invertebrates only!

  • Ideal for all tropical and sub-tropical reptiles
  • Optimal levels of UVB
  • Provides necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism
  • UVA rays stimulate appetite, activity and reproductive behavior

Prevents Metabolic Bone Disease.

Metabolic bone disease (MBD) is a prevalent disorder in captive reptiles resulting from mineral imbalances, primarily calcium, phosphorus, and insufficient vitamin D3. Symptoms include weak bones, tremors, and lethargy. A crucial cause is the lack of ultraviolet B (UVB) light exposure. Reptiles need UVB for vitamin D3 synthesis, vital for calcium processing. Using UVB lights is essential to prevent MBD.

Enhanced Immunity.

UVB light plays a pivotal role in reptile health, especially in synthesizing vitamin D3. This vitamin not only aids calcium metabolism, vital for bone health, but also fortifies the reptile's immune system. When reptiles absorb UVB rays, they produce vitamin D3, which in turn helps regulate immune responses and combat diseases.  Appropriate UVB exposure is instrumental in strengthening the immunity of reptiles, making them less susceptible to various ailments.

Low Maintenance

Improved Appetite.

Ultraviolet light (UVA and UVB rays) is crucial for the overall well-being of reptiles. Exposure to these wavelengths stimulates natural behaviours and promotes appetite, breeding, and overall reptile health. UVA mainly enhances well-being and vision, influencing activities like mating and food foraging. UVB aids in synthesizing vitamin D3, which impacts calcium metabolism and overall vitality. Combined, UVA and UVB light boosts a reptile's appetite, making them more active and inclined to eat.
