The Komodo UV-SUN Lamp is designed to provide the optimum levels of UVA, UVB and Infrared Heat for reptiles that love basking in the sun. This lamp is an important aid in the prevention of metabolic bone disease. Use as directed to produce the ideal basking spot for reptiles and amphibians that enjoy natural sunlight. Animals thrive under the full spectrum lighting produced by this lamp as well as being able to utilize the UVB exposure to stimulate photo-bio-synthesis of vitamin D3.

This lamp will work best in a completely vertical position, in a ceramic Edison screw lamp fixture designed to take its wattage. It does not require an expensive external ballast to operate. The minimum distance from the lamp to the floor of the cage should be no less then 30cm. Place the lamp at one end of the habitat to help provide the correct thermal gradient and UVB gradient suitable for the inhabitants. Remember, as an example, a Bearded Dragon will have different lighting and heating requirements from an Iguana, which will be different again for a Tortoise.

Provide suitable dĩcor within the habitat to allow the residents to move to and from the light and shade as desired. There should also be a range of temperatures in the habitat to allow for thermoregulation (moving in and out of heat). Arboreal species like Chameleons that are housed in tall cages may prefer to retreat to the substrate to get cooler or climb higher to get warmer. Terrestrial species like Bearded Dragons, in longer cages, may prefer to move from one end of their habitat, where it is warmer, to the opposite end to get cooler.
