Zilla Heat & UVB Basking Fixture
Reptiles need heat, UVB, and bright white visible light as part of their setup to ensure good health and help them thrive. Reptiles are ectothermic, which means that instead of producing their own body heat, they depend on external sources like the sun for warmth. This heat energy is used to digest their food, maintain bodily function, and stay generally healthy. Since reptiles don't produce their own heat, we must provide the heat they need with heat lamps.
UVB is an essential wavelength naturally found in sunlight, and is beneficial for most — if not all — reptiles. UVB is critical to helping your pet’s bones stay healthy and strong, and plays a role in a variety of other essential functions.
The Zilla Heat & UVB Basking Fixture is a two-socket lamp that accommodates one Zilla fluorescent coil bulb and one Zilla mini halogen bulb, creating a concentrated basking area that overlaps heat and UVB the way nature intended it to be.
Best suited to use in terrariums less than 12" tall.
