*Notes on Operating Range
The operating range is the distance from the lamp to the reptile's basking site. In order for your reptile to benefit from the UVB, you must provide your reptile with the appropriate temperature zone. Be sure to provide an appropriate temperature and UVB gradient. This will allow your reptile to adjust their distance to heat and UVB lamps in order to regulate their body temperature and UVB exposure. CAUTION: Always have your lamp at least four inches away from your reptiles.
Note: Screen covers on terrariums significantly reduce the amount of UVB that reaches your reptile's basking site. As the screen mesh gets finer, more UVB is blocked or filtered. CAUTION: Be sure that the lamp fixture is suspended securely above the enclosure in a manner that will prevent the fixture from falling into the enclosure.
