High Output UVB Bulb

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.

Light and UV radiation in compact fluorescent bulbs decreases over time. Changing your terrarium bulbs yearly ensures optimal light conditions to keep your reptiles healthy. Visit www.exo-terra.com and register for the “Restore The Rays” program and be reminded when to replace your bulb.

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.

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.
