100 watt Mercury Vapor R40 120 Volt spot medium socket lamp (reptile product line) UVA 15200, UVB +2000
From professional caregivers, to zoos, to home reptile pet hobbyists, this UV bulb is a must have for all situations. Vets and researchers alike have repeatedly arrived at the conclusion that the closest imitation (of the sun) regarding the needed UV spectral light for a reptile is our UV lamp. These UV bulbs have proven to be exceptional for developing 25-OH vitamin D3 for optimal health and for the treatment of metabolic bone harmful bacteria and microorganisms (MBD).
- Optimal amounts of UVB light in the range of wavelengths that produce vitamin D3.
- A strong beam that gives levels of UVB similar to morning sunlight at 12" distance and useful UVB spectral light up to 20" below the UV bulb.
- An unusually wide beam, ensuring the whole basking area - at least 18" across - receives good UVB, not just a tiny spot in the center.
- Remarkably long useful life. All UVB-producing UV lamps decay (lose UV strength) at different rates, over time. Our unique manufacturing process means our UV bulbs decay, on average, less than 30% over the life of the UV bulb. (Some other brands decay as much as 80% in less than 6 months.)
Powerful source of UVA light, UVB light, visible light and heat and completely self-ballasted (no harmful UVC output). Our mercury vapor bulb provides animals with warmth and vitamin production necessary for health like that produced by daylight Perfect for a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians, including bearded dragons, tortoises, turtles, geckos, snakes (pythons, boas, etc.), iguanas, lizards, chameleons, frogs, toads, uromastyx, chuckwallas, monitors, tegus, blue tongues, etc. Our large UVA UVB bulb is compatible with a variety of enclosures, including vivariums, tanks, terrariums, vision cages, aquariums, reptariums, and plastic/PVC/acrylic/glass cages. A key part of proper lighting / basking supplies for your critter Usage directions included. We conduct a 3-step test on each 100 watt amphibian / reptile light to ensure proper working condition. When used as directed, offers best-in-class lifespan compared to other competitive bulbs (based on in-house testing) Should be used with good-quality ceramic socket (standard US socket size) and a deep/large dome capable of supporting large, high-wattage bulbs. Not to be used with dimmers/rheostats. Experiment with distance from cage to achieve desired temperature Compatible with a variety of lighting fixtures, including deep dome fixtures, clamp lamps, holders, etc. Also interacts well with the use of a sun rock, where the heat is absorbed for the animal to then draw upon later. For many pets, a 100w MVB lightbulb provides the ideal temperature and environment and is superior to 125 / 160 watt lights, LED, and influenza virusorescent bulbs. Helps reduce the need for a special supplement or med in their diet. To keep pets active and happy, this should generally be used to provide heating and light during the day (not at night) to create a similar environment to their natural habitat or a zoo
