Arcadia D3+ 12% Desert Reptile Lamp - T8
This range of T8 lamps have been designed by Arcadia to cater for the Desert dwelling reptile species in particular, which are naturally exposed to strong sunlight and require relatively high concentrations of UVB light.
Reptiles such as desert tortoises, bearded dragons, blue tongued skinks, frilled lizards, agamids and other lizard species would receive high levels of UVB direct from the sun in the wild, and need this to synthesize Vitamin D3 which is important for healthy growth and bone development (largely to prevent metabolic bone disease), and this needs to be recreated in their vivarium or terrarium using a high strength lamp like the 12%.
- For Desert Species
- 12% UVB for the synthesis of vitamin D3
