FAQ

What is UVB and why does my reptile need it?

UVB is an invisible ultraviolet spectrum of light. It is essential to all living animals, but especially to diurnal reptiles (definition: reptiles active during the day). Nocturnal reptiles also benefit from UVB, but it’s not as crucial. UVB light allows the body to synthesize vitamin D3, which is required to metabolize calcium. Without it, reptiles are unable to use the calcium in their diet and begin to take it from their bones which causes medical issues with their bones and nervous system and will eventually lead to death.All reptiles should follow a day/night cycle and diurnal reptiles especially need a good amount of daytime light but they also require nighttime, where there is no bright light so they can rest. Research your specific reptile breed's particular needs, but as a general rule 12 hours of the day should have daytime light & heat as well as UVB. Those lamps should be shut off for the second 12 hours of the day but there needs to be constant heat and use of a red/black night heat lamp or heat pad so it won't disturb the animal.

Does my reptile need UVB Light?

All diurnal (definition: active during the day) reptiles should have access to UVB light. Turtles, tortoises, bearded dragons, iguanas, and chameleons are some common examples of reptiles that need UVB light. UVB lights should be kept on during the day and turned off at night and should be used along with calcium supplements.All reptiles should follow a day/night cycle and diurnal reptiles especially need a good amount of daytime light but they also require nighttime, where there is no bright light so they can rest.
