Bring the outdoor sun indoors for your pets with Exotic Nutrition's UVA/UVB Bulb. Emits the ideal UVB spectrum for optimal Vitamin D3 photosynthesis. The UVA/UVB Bulb is especially designed to simulate conditions for reptiles with very high UV requirements, like diurnal reptiles from desert environments. These areas receive direct unfiltered sunlight with high levels of UVB. The significantly high Vitamin D3 yield index results in increased vitamin D3 photosynthesis to aid calcium absorption and prevent metabolic diseases. The extended UVB penetration makes this bulb the ideal choice for taller terrariums or terrariums with denser screens. This bulb is specially designed to provide beneficial UVA and UVB―the full spectrum of natural sunlight to make vitamin D3 which is essential for growth, overall health, and reproduction.
