Why should I buy the Zoo Med Reptisun Nano UVB?

In small enclosures, it can be difficult to find the right UVB option for your reptile, with many being too large or too powerful. The Zoo Med Reptisun Nano UVB is a nano option perfect for enclosures that are 10 gallons or less and can provide a UVI of 1-4 depending on the distance between the lamp and the basking area, making it ideal for a wide range of species too. 

Why do I need a UV light in my terrarium?

Reptiles in the wild will spend a large part of their day basking in the sun, absorbing ultraviolet light. The ultraviolet light is necessary as it assists reptiles with manufacturing Vitamin D3, which is required for a reptile to absorb calcium from their food, an essential nutrient that keeps their bones strong.

What is a UVB light and which reptiles is it suitable for?

A UVB light is an ultraviolet UVB light, which has a shorter wavelength than a UVA light. Most reptiles who are active in the daytime require a UVB light, something that is not as frequently required for nocturnal reptiles.

Some examples of reptiles that will benefit from having a UVB light are:

  • Bearded dragons
  • Carpet pythons
  • Box turtles
  • Veiled Chameleons
  • Collared lizards
  • Most other daytime active reptiles
