Reptile Lighting, Reptile UV and Other Reptile Supplies for Excellent Reptile Care
Many herpetoculturists agree that an effective terrarium set-up is one that recreates the natural environment of which your reptile had originated. As there are desert reptiles, tropical reptiles and amphibious reptiles, there is a wide range of reptile supplies available to accommodate each unique need. Whether you have a Leopard Gecko or Inland Bearded Dragon that prefers a warmer climate or a Crested Gecko or Neon Tree Dragon that prefers a more humid climate, proper reptile lighting is a must. As the health of your reptile is directly affected by their environment, it is vital that your terrarium is properly equipped with the reptile UV light bulbs and gauges to maintain a climate that is comfortable for him. Furthermore, since most terrariums are kept indoors, full-spectrum reptile lighting is needed for reptiles to remain healthy and vigorous. In addition to aiding in reptile thermoregulation for proper metabolic functioning, special reptile UV lighting is required by reptiles to synthesize vitamin D and calcium for stronger bones or a stronger shell. Ensure the health of your pet reptile, while promoting his longevity with adequate lighting through various reptile supplies today.
To simulate normal daylight, there are various reptile UV light bulbs available in both fluorescent and halogen types, such as Zilla Desert 50 UVB Flourescent T5 Bulbs and Zilla Halogen Day Blue Light Bulbs. Meanwhile, there is also an assortment of evening reptile lighting equipment available to provide your reptile with a source of night-time heat and light. For your convenience, there are combination packs available, such as the Zoo Med Day & Night Reptile Bulb Comp Pack and the Zilla Blue & Red Incandescent Heat Lamp Value Pack, which both aid in providing your reptile with 24-hour temperature control and ambient heat that will not disturb the regular day and night cycle your reptile is used to.
In addition to various types of light bulbs, there are other reptile supplies for creating and maintaining a healthy source of artificial light, such as thermometers and gauges, digital and analog timers and lighting fixtures. For terrariums not equipped with lighted hoods, there are lamps, such as Fluker’s Clamp Lamps, which feature a ceramic socket and a spring-loaded, swiveling head clamp. There is also the Zilla Gooseneck Clamp Lamp that has a heavy-duty clamp that ensures a secure mounting to your terrarium. Keep your herp healthy, happy and active with the proper lighting today.
