Reptile UV & UVB Lights

We all know that a little sunlight feels good on the skin, and it feels good to reptiles, too! For them, it’s essential to their health and well-being. You’ve probably seen lizards or tortoises stretching out on a log, basking in the sunlight. It has a direct effect on their skin, and reptiles need ultraviolet light for a lot of their bodily processes and normal behaviors. Pretty much every aspect of their lives requires UVA and UVB light In order to provide pet reptiles the UV light they need, you have to replicate that life-sustaining source with a special UV light lamp. UVA light helps reptiles perceive their environment, and it’s good for psychological health because it stimulates their interest in feeding and other normal activities. UVB is even more crucial, because it helps them produce vitamin D3 and process calcium for healthy bones and also supports their immune system.

Exo Terra makes a Desert UVB 150 Reptile Lamp to simulate a natural desert environment, and they also have a Tropical UVB 100 Reptile Lamp to replicate rainforests and tropical locations with less direct sunlight. Zoo Med offers the PowerSun UV Mercury Vapor Reptile Lamp for an all-in-one solution. This reptile UV light emits UVA, UVB and heat, and it’s perfect for large terrariums or bird aviaries. You might not be able to see ultraviolet light, but a simple UV light lamp makes all the difference to snakes, geckos, bearded dragons, iguanas, chameleons and all sorts of reptiles. And you can find just the right UVA and/or UVB lamp to fit your needs right here at Chewy.
