The breeding of exotic animals requires providing them with appropriate conditions that stimulate development and improve their welfare. The main factor determining the correct breeding is the selection of the correct lighting. UVB bulbs are an important element of terrarium equipment, thanks to which reptiles and amphibians are provided with the sun's rays. Their presence is extremely important, since they are responsible for the production and absorption of vitamin D3 by the animal. In our store you can buy compact models, UVB basking, T5 T8 fluorescent lamps and metahalogen models.

  • Reptiles bred in a terrarium are devoid of sunlight emission, and more precisely it is about UVB rays, i.e. in the range of 280-315nm. Rays in this range are responsible for the production of vitamin D3, so they are necessary for the proper functioning of the animal. If possible, reptiles should be exposed to the sun during the summer. To replace the sun in the terrarium, incandescent bulbs and fluorescent lamps emitting UVB rays are used. Depending on the demand, different models of incandescent bulbs/fluorescent lamps are available. Type 2.0 5.0 10.0 markings are popular. EXO TERRA some time ago she ran the new UVB100 (old 5.0), UVB150 (old 10.0) and UVB200 (new most powerful UVB bulb) markings. The higher the number, the higher the dose of UVB rays. How to choose the right UVB bulb? The 5.0 designation is used for tropical reptiles where the expansion in the natural environment to the sun is moderate, e.g. chameleons. The designation 10.0 and higher is used for desert reptiles, e.g. bearded agama. UVB lighting will not fully replace the real sun, the power of UVB rays of natural sunlight is much higher than the available bulbs / fluorescent lamps, which is why animal supplementation with vitamin D3 is additionally carried out. Vitamin D3 is present in vitamin and calcium preparations. The best source of UVB rays are bulbs integrated with a heating bulb, e.g. PowerSun UVB ZOO MED 100-160W and Metal Halide lamps, which provide the most UVB rays.

  • 3-in-1 bulbs, also called self-ballasted bulbs, are something between a metahalogen and a compact fluorescent lamp. The most important advantage of this type of lighting is that it does not require ballast, just screw in the bulb and you're done. Incandescent bulbs are characterized by high UVB emission, UVB emission is much better than in compact fluorescent lamps, which makes it possible to use these bulbs in high terrariums. In addition to UVb, the bulb performs the function of a heating bulb. The power of the bulbs is 80W, 100W and 160W. These bulbs are not divided into 5.0, 10.0, desert or tropical. The UVb is adjusted by hanging the bulb at the appropriate height. The appropriate height is read from the measurements or from the data of the prodecent.

  • In this category you will find UVB tubular fluorescent lamps T5 and T8. In the case of long terrariums, it is worth using a tubular fluorescent lamp along the entire length of the terrarium and, in addition, locally stronger UVB bulbs, e.g. at the heat island.

  • UVB metahalogens are the most powerful source of UVB, in addition to UVB, the bulb gives UVA rays and acts as a heating bulb.

Professional UVB bulbs for terrarium

The UVB bulb is used to fill the terrarium with light and provide reptiles and amphibians with natural sunlight. Very often, these types of models also provide a heating function, creating a suitable climate for desert and tropical reptiles, amphibians and spiders. When choosing the right lighting, it is important to pay attention to the markings of products. The higher the number given on the label, the higher the dose of UVB rays becomes. Individual species of animals differ from each other in the degree of light demand. Tropical reptiles such as the chameleon require a moderate dose of sunlight, while desert species need an increased amount.
