Many desert reptiles require UVB, which is an essential wavelength found in sunlight. 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 Zoo Med Desert UVB Lighting Combo Pack includes:

  • Mini Deep Dome Lamp Fixture
  • ReptiSun 10.0 Mini Compact Fluorescent (13 w)

This lamp works best with small terrariums 8-12" tall, for reptiles with low UVB requirements. For larger enclosures, we recommend the more powerful Zoo Med T5 HO Reptisun 10.0.

Lamp diameter: 5.5"
