160 watt Mercury Vapor Par38 120 Volt flood medium socket lamp (reptile product line) UVA 4700, UVB 355
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 lamps 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.)
