Forest reptile species are partial sun baskers and do well with the 6% UVB T5 bulbs by Arcadia. Chameleons, Day Geckos, Iguanas, and Water Dragons enjoy this level of UVB and UVA output, as this bulb supports their synthesis of vitamin D3.
Arcadia reptile lamps are specially formulated to produce light in the UVB and UVA wavebands, as well as visible light and use a special glass formulation designed to allow through far more of the UVB and UVA. This means that we can offer lamps with spectral radiation patterns tailored to meet the requirements of specific reptile species.
