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.
Unlike 15 years ago, when the knowledge of this subject was minimal, we now know the requirements of most species kept in captivity. In order to provide reptiles the best possible lighting solution Exo Terra® has tweaked all spectrums and added several new bulbs based on recent research.
No longer should anyone rely on the old 5.0 and 10.0 UVB principle, as these fictive numbers only vaguely indicate the UVB output of the bulb ranging between 280-320nm. The wavelength that is responsible for vitamin D3 photosynthesis however, ranges from 290 to 310 nm with a peak production at 294nm. The UVB range below 290nm is undesirable, and can even be harmful, while radiation above 310nm destroys vitamin D3. The positive effects of UVB lighting for your reptile also depend on many other factors, such as whether the bulbs are correctly sited, changed regularly and turned on for a sufficient number of hours.
In order to provide reptiles with the best possible lighting solution, Exo Terra has tweaked all spectrums and launched a whole new fantastic Linear Lighting Range based on recent research.
The new Exo Terra lighting range utilises a unique new rating system and takes the guesswork out of reptile lighting. In just three easy steps using Exo Terra’s UV Buddy app an individual can determine which bulb is right for their reptile. Firstly, an animal’s star rating can be checked on the UV index chart, the existing set-up for the average basking distance can then be checked for the average basking distance. Finally, the animal rating and bulb positioning height can be compared with those featured on the bulb packaging to find the right bulb.
The new range has a variety of bulbs perfect for all different species including full spectrum daylight, tropical terrarium, desert terrarium and high output UVB bulbs.
