Bearded Dragon lighting is one of the most important elements to a functional and healthy habitat, ensuring that your Dragon gets the correct dose of important UVB light for health and happiness.
All diurnal (awake during the day) species need enough light to see by, like us humans, called UVA. Moreover though, they need UVB light, which is often provided by a fluorescent tube, giving them the ability to absorb nutrients and keep healthy. Desert reptiles like these guys need a high level UVB bulb to help them generate the vitamin D3 they need to absorb calcium in their diet to build healthy bones, avoiding metabolic bone disease.
These bulbs will each have their own recommend life span from each manufacturer, so be sure to check and change bulbs as required to keep your Beardie healthy. Why not browse our range today and complete the perfect lighting set up for your Beardie.
