lamp emits Ultraviolet (A & B) rays as well as visible light and
heat. They project a beam of light and heat. No fixture, ballast or
reflector is needed. Your animal should always be able to either
bask in the light or move out of its beam. The Flood Lights should
be approximately 12" to 18" away from the animal and the Spot Lights
24" to 30".
5.0 Recent tests at the Boston University
School of Medicine show that Zoo Med's Reptisun 5.0 UVB and Iguana
Light 5.0 UVB bulbs induce 7-DHC conversion to Pre-vitamin D3 at a
rate 23 times greater than the next leading UVB reptile bulb!
Wavelength penetrates a full 10-12" from bulb's surface.
Bulbs last a
minimum of one year before diminishing wavelength. (Replace Bulb at
1 to 1 1/2 years.)
These are MUST HAVE items. Cheap timers like the one on the left
work great for most uses. I use the digital timer on the bottom for
my misting system. it is more accurate on short times (4 - 5
minutes). The others do great for turning lights and humidifiers off
and on .The thermometer pictured on the bottom is a Radio Shack
model. I have seen similar products in Wal-mart for $15.00. It gives
you humidity and two temperature readings PLUS it stores the high
and low, which is great for long term monitoring.
The T-Rex Reptile Habitat Thermometer is an
accurate and easy to read dial type thermometer that is designed for
use INSIDE the reptile habitat. The T-Rex thermometer is different
from other reptile thermometers currently on the market because it
is not a digital strip. The T-Rex team has found that many, if not
most, consumers assume the digital strip goes on the OUTSIDE
terrarium glass, much like on their aquariums. This results in less
than desired accuracy in temperature readings.
The T-Rex Habitat Thermometer is compact
and mounts naturally at any desired location inside the reptile's
habitat, giving accurate readings in a wide range from 60 F to 120
F. For best results, use two: one in the hottest area of the
enclosure, the "baking zone" and one in the coolest corner.
User friendly instructions give
general guidelines for required temperature ranges of the most
commonly kept reptiles.
Serious and knowledgeable hobbyists now understand
the importance of accurately measuring humidity in order to maintain
different types of reptiles, whether desert or tropical, in their
proper natural environment.
The T-Rex Reptile Humidity Gauge, like the
T-Rex Thermometer, is an incredibly accurate and easy to read
dial-type instrument that is designed for use INSIDE the reptile
habitat. The gauge is compact and easy-to-mount, yet it measures
relative humidity with an accuracy equal to that of laboratory
instruments that cost up to 10 times more!!
The T-Rex Reptile Humidity Gauge is custom
designed to display comparative readings for desert, moderate or
tropical environments. User friendly instructions give general
guidelines for the required humidity range of the most commonly kept
