The Exo Terra 2.0, 5.0, and 10.0 compact florescent UVB bulbs are no longer in production. After several years of research and lab testing, Exo Terra has released a new line of UVB bulbs which are more effective. The Exo Terra natural Light (2.0 equivalent), UVB 100 (5.0 equivalent), and UVB 150 (10.0 equivalent) are the latest in UVB technology. The Exo Terra UVB 200 provides even more vital UVB light to those desert reptiles that demand intense ultraviolet radiation. The Exo Terra 26w compact fluorescent bulbs measure approximately 5.5" long (4.5" after they're screwed in), and are about 2" across.
The advantage of the Exo Terra Repti Glo Compact Fluorescent bulb is its size and the fact that it is self-ballasted. A regular screw fitting is sufficient to operate these bulbs. The spiral shape of the bulb enables vertical or horizontal mounting without compromising performance.
It is recommended to combine a high UVB output (Repti Glo 5.0 and 10.0) with a very high visual light output (Repti Glo 2.0) for optimal results. Fluorescent bulbs do not provide sufficient heat. A separate heat source is required in addition (ex: incandescent basking lamp).
The Exo Terra Repti Glo 10.0 has a very high UVB output similar to that associated with desert environments. Desert locations receive more direct sunlight than any other because of fewer clouds, less air humidity and no plants or trees to provide shade. Therefore desert reptiles are more exposed to UV radiation than any other type of reptile. This bulb can also be used on screened terrariums or terrariums with dense screen covers to ensure UVB penetration. Dense screens can filter out up to 50% of the UVB rays.
