Reptile Lighting

Reptile lighting that is appropriate for the species of your pet is critical. In order to thrive, your reptile needs not only the right kind of light, but the right kind of light for the right periods of time each day. Appropriate reptile lighting will ensure your pet gets what he needs.

Many reptiles are from desert or tropical environments. In captivity, they need heat and lighting that simulate these conditions. This requires full-spectrum reptile lighting, to best emulate the natural sunlight of their native regions. Full-spectrum lights provide both UVA and UVB rays of ultraviolet light. But since their natural habitats do not include 24 hours a day of light, reptile lighting must also take into account normal daily patterns of light and darkness.
