Repti - Glo Tropical Lamp 13W
Rolf C Hagen
The Repti - Glo Tropical Lamp produces 13 watts making it ideal for all tropical and sub-tropical reptiles. The lamp has a high UVB output (5%) that effectively reachs up to 30 cm (12"), providing necessary UVB rays for optimal calcium metabolism and which also stimulates appetite, activity, and reproductive behaviour through the UVA radiation. Recommended in combination with Repti Glo 2.0 for a higher visual light output.
Additional Product Information:
The Exo Terra Repti Glo 5.0 has a moderate to high UVB output, similar to that of shady environments such as rain forests and other tropical locations. Reptiles living in these habitats receive less UV radiation because of the many climatological conditions (fairly high humidity, changes in weather, etc) that prevent direct sunlight from reaching them or their basking sites.
