Product DescriptionThese coiled lanterns provide reptiles and amphibians with the best source of light and heat.
Under natural conditions, the sun produces ultraviolet B radiation (UVB). UVB radiation is needed to produce vitamin D.
In captivity, reptiles that have poor lighting conditions can develop life-threatening diseases.
Sun-Glow Coil Lanterns provide essential UVB radiation for captive reptiles and amphibians.
These bulbs actually generate more UVB (> 250 vW/cm2) than competitors' 5.0 fluorescent tubes (> 250 mW/cm2)! Sun-Glow Coil Lanterns should be used in combination with Fluker's incandescent bulbs, which can be used to regulate the environmental temperature.
