Why is UVB important?
Reptiles need UVB for Vitamin D production and calcium metabolism. Without UVB, reptiles can develop Metabolic Bone Disease in 6 months or less. UVB, along with proper temperatures, will enable your reptiles to make Vitamin D and process calcium from their diet.

Why is UVA important?
Reptiles and amphibians can see things that humans can't. UVA is part of the rainbow of colors that reptiles can see. UVA helps to increase animal activity levels, appetite, and reproductive behaviors. Without UVA, they are color blind!

    I'm not sure if it was the new UVB setup or the dimmable heat lamp fixture and hotter bulb, but my dragon is MUCH happier and more active than he's been since the weather turned cooler. He's on the prowl and eating regularly again, the terrarium setup looks more professional, and the bulbs should last twice as long now. My only complaint is that I didn't know it came with a bulb, but now I just have an extra to use in 12 months.

    Half price of Pet shop's

    Best price I've found


    Great deal. Saved $$$s

    works well

    This product actually came with a bulb and I had ordered one as well. The light give great ambiance to the tank without hurting my Gecko's eyes. I only leave it on for 12 hours a day and off for 12 and it is set on a timer. Works great and fits well on top of tank.

    Perfect Reptile UV Light

    I love this light it is perfect for my chameleon’s terrarium. I would definitely recommend it to any chameleon owners. It is very nice and high quality. Great value for the money!
