Exo Terra Repti-Glo 10.0 Compact Fluorescent Desert Terrarium Lamp, 26-Watt

The Exo Terra Repti-Glo 10.0 Compact Desert Terrarium Lamp has a very high UVB output similar to that associated with desert environments. Desert locations receive more direct sunlight than any other because of fewer clouds, less air humidity and no plants or trees to provide shade. Therefore desert reptiles are more exposed to UV radiation than any other type of reptile. This bulb can also be used on screened terrariums or terrariums with dense screen covers to ensure UVB penetration. Dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays. The advantage of the Exo Terra Repti-Glo 10.0 Compact Desert Terrarium Lamp is its size and the fact that it is self-ballasted. A regular screw fitting is sufficient to operate these bulbs. The bulb has wattage of 26, and the spiral shape of the bulb enables vertical or horizontal mounting without compromising performance. Although light is much more complex, there are three facets of light that are important for reptile husbandry: ultraviolet light, visible light and infrared light. In order to create these three biological aspects of sunlight artificially, Exo Terra has developed several specialized lights. Reptiles require appropriate and high quality lighting in order to meet certain different metabolic needs. Fluorescent bulbs lose their UV radiation and approximately 50% of their lighting output quality within one year. Changing your terrarium bulb regularly ensures optimal light conditions and UV radiation to keep your reptiles healthy.

Recommended for use with screened terrariums and terrariums with dense screen covers; Combine with Repti-Glo 2.0 for a higher visual light output
