REPTI-ZOO UVB lamp uses UVB powder and technology imported from Japan to produce high-quality beneficial ray emitting glass bulbs and spiral tubes. The wavelength is stable between 290nm-310nm. The excellent ventilation design is provided in the medium wave UVB sunburn spectrum. The UVB producing bulbs passed the rigorous American ELT certification and have been sold in the American market in 2015. Main functions of UVB lamp: Promotes the production of Vitamin D3 and promotes calcium absorption. Vitamin D3 is an important component of calcium metabolism in reptile pets. Vitamin D3 production and calcium absorption combine, resulting in healthy skeletal tissue. Generally, UVB 2.0, 5.0 and 10.0 refer to the percentage of 2%, 5% and 10% UVB. Usage: UVB 5.0 is applicable to reptiles living in tropical forests or subtropical zone, such as: star tortoise and other most tortoises. It is suggested to match UVB light output with the specific needs of the reptile or amphibian Suitable to all reptiles with moderate requirements for ultraviolet ray in tropical and subtropical zones, such as IG, Furcifer pardalis, red legs, Myanar, radiation, star tortoise, continental tortoise, etc. UVB (5%) Induces the activation of vitamin D3 that combines with calcium powder to promote the transformation of calcium in bone and blood (calcium absorption); UVA (30%) Improves appetite, promotes animal’s activity to induce mating behavior. Effective UV lighting range reaches 30-40cm. It is recommended to be combined with fluorescent lamp UVB2.0. The energy-saving lamp gives out moderate UVB, just as the ray in the shielded environment in the simulated tropical rainforest. The reptiles living in rainforest are rarely exposed to the ultraviolet ray radiation. Because sunshine can't direct arrive to animals and their sunbathing places due to many factors. Some ultraviolet ray is filtered due to high humidity.
