Reptiles and amphibians need both UVB and UVA light to live healthy lifestyles. These are both types of ultraviolet (and UV) light. Each type of light has a different role to play in keeping your pet happy and healthy.

• UVA light helps regulate behaviours such as feeding, diurnal movement, mating and similar activities.

• UVB light allows the synthesis of vitamin D3, which helps to absorb calcium.

UV wavelengths are filtered by glass and plastic, so to get the most out of your bulbs be sure they have direct exposure to the habitat. Over time UV output will diminish. We recommend replacing your REPTIRAD Mercury Vapour Bulbs every 5000 hours or 12 months.
