Reptile Uvb lights are also called replenishment lamps, reptile lamps, pet lamps.It can emit natural light with UVB content of 2.0, 5.0, and 10.0, respectively, with strong irradiance, low light decay, and long life. Widely used in zoos, pet markets, reptile players, reptile box manufacturing and other fields.
Many reptiles, such as lizards, turtles, snakes, etc., need to irradiate sunlight and use the decomposition of vitamin D3 in the body to absorb calcium. Vitamin D3 is essential for the synthesis of calcium in animals. The growth and robustness of bones are inseparable from calcium. If the reptile is deficient in calcium, it is susceptible to rickets known as rickets and it dies. However, in the breeding process, it is not easy to receive the sunlight, and direct sunlight will cause the temperature inside the cage to be too high, which will be detrimental to the health of the reptiles. Therefore, the best way is to use a reptile Uvb lamp for indoor sunbathing to simulate supplemental sunlight. Although reptiles can obtain vitamin D3 by ingesting foods, studies have shown that D3 obtained through dietary structures cannot substitute for vitamin D3 synthesized through the skin using sunlight, and even supplementing them with such in vivo injections cannot replace this vitamin. Most reptiles need to synthesize vitamin D3 necessary for healthy growth on the skin. Therefore, they need to be in a special wavelength band of ultraviolet light (known as UVB ultraviolet light). Reptile Uvb lights can emit this special wavelength of UV light. The ordinary full-spectrum fluorescent lamp does not include the ultraviolet B portion, because the glass absorbs the ultraviolet ray B. Therefore, the reptile Uvb lamp must use a special glass design to allow the safety of ultraviolet B and UV A through the glass
