ZooMed ReptiSun 10.0 Compact Lamp 26w

ZooMed ReptiSun 10.0 Compact Lamp 26w –

ReptiSun 10.0 Perfect for all desert and basking reptiles!

10% UVB Output, 30% UVA Output, FULL SPECTRUM

The new ReptiSun Compact Fluorescent lamps use a special UVB transmitting quartz glass for maximum UVB penetration.

Cool burning compact fluorescent bulbs screw 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 behaviours.

UVB is a necessary part of the process in which vitamin D3 is produced in the skin of humans and animals, and is also what causes sunburn in humans.

The vitamin D3 that is produced is responsible for regulating calcium metabolism.

Vitamin D3 is obtained through diet or UVB exposure. Since most reptile species are unable to utilize dietary vitamin D3, they must have access to UVB.

A lack of UVB and vitamin D3 can ultimately result in metabolic bone disease in reptiles, and rickets in humans.

Nearly all animals that are active during the day are exposed to UVB.
