USE WITH A ZOO MED REPTISUN® T5 HO LAMP TO PROVIDE UVB, UVA & VISIBLE LIGHT FOR YOUR REPTILE:
- UVB: Reptiles need UVB for vitamin D production and calcium metabolism. Without UVB, reptiles can develop Metabolic Bone Disease in 6 months or less. UVB along with proper temperatures, will enable your reptiles to make vitamin D and process calcium from their diet.
- UVA: Reptiles and amphibians can see things that humans can’t. UVA is part of the rainbow of colors that reptiles can see. UVA helps to increase activity levels, appetite, and reproductive behaviors. Without UVA, they are colorblind!
ReptiSun® T5 HO lamp: The strongest ReptiSun lamp available: 2X stronger than T8 lamps.
T5 HO Electronic Ballast (inside) for rapid start and maximum lamp performance.
