The Exo Terra Repti Glo 5.0 range features a UVB output that's perfect for forest dwelling reptiles like Chameleons, crested geckos and other rainforest creatures.
In the rainforest, your reptile would only receive the UVB light from the sun after much of it had been filtered out by the rainforest canopy, and therefore they only require around 5-6% UVB to generate the Vitamin D they need to correctly assumilate calcium into their bones - an essential process for reptiles.
