The D3 Compact Reptile Lamp has been designed to satisfy the UV requirements of reptiles which rely on skin synthesis of Vitamin D3.
This single-ended lamp with a standard E27 screw fitting can be used in small cages, where installation of tube lighting may not be convenient or practical. You could also use the lamp in a medium to large cage to create a basking area within the enclosure.
This 23-Watt energy-saving lamp actually has an output equivalent to a regular 120-Watt bulb, and does not require the use of a ballast, as in the case of regular fluorescent tubes.
Absolutely essential to their health and growth, UV plays a key role in the production of Vitamin D3, which is necessary in the absorption and metabolism of calcium as well as other essential vitamins and minerals.
