The ReptiSun 10.0 18 inch UVB Bulb is great for desert dwelling reptiles
that require a higher UVB output. It's recommended for use in a lighting
fixture with an electronic ballast, as it lowers the flickering effect common
with fluorescent bulbs.
The use of UVB is incredibly beneficial to many reptiles and can eliminate
the chances of them developing Metabolic Bone Disease. ReptiSun bulbs are used
and trusted by professionals and hobbyists.
