REPTILE UVB200 LINEAR 18W

Long-lasting High Output Bulb

  • Ideal for desert reptiles with very high UV requirements
  • UVB helps prevent metabolic bone disease
  • Ideal for desert set-ups or taller terrariums
  • Very high D3 Yield Index
  • Increased Vitamin D3 photosynthesis
  • Maximizes calcium absorption
  • Enhanced UVB penetration distance

The Exo Terra Reptile UVB200 emits the ideal UVB spectrum for optimal Vitamin D3 photosynthesis. The Reptile UVB200 Bulb is especially designed to simulate conditions for reptiles with very high UV requirements, like diurnal reptiles from desert environments. These areas receive direct unfiltered sunlight with high levels of UVB. The significantly high Vitamin D3 yield index results in increased vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases. The extended UVB penetration makes this bulb the ideal choice for taller terrariums or terrariums with denser screens.

The longer sizes can be placed on multiple terrariums.

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

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.
