The ingenious terrarium lamp with the good light spectrum: EXO TERRA DAYLIGHT BASKING SPOT! Much healthy UV-A radiation and high heat emission.
Item number RK939
The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot Terrarium Lamp belongs to the so-called broad spectrum daylight lamps for the terrarium. The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot daylight lamp covers a particularly wide spectrum of the light range important for reptiles and amphibians. The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot Terrarium Lamp is also ideal for plant growth. As far as the function of this terrarium lamp is concerned, it is a pure-bred daylight lamp for the basic lighting of terrariums, which focuses light and heat through its design (spotlight) and can thus also transport over long distances in the terrarium. At the same time the Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot lamp increases the air temperature in the terrarium. The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot daylight lamp can therefore also be used in larger terrariums, for example to set up local heat spots for reptiles that are visited by terrarium animals as needed. The Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot is still not a normal spotlight for terrariums, the terrarium lamp is too special. The secret lies in a shell of neodymium, which used to be called neodymium. Neodymium belongs to the element group of lanthanides and in principle it is a soft, extremely reactive metal which, in combination with glass, develops quite extraordinary properties. Neodymium gives the glass a slightly pinkish violet shimmer, but that's not the point. Much more important for species-appropriate terrarium lighting is the fact that neodymium(III) oxide gives the lamp glass special possibilities to improve the spectrum of light. Glass alloyed with neodymium is characterized by sharp absorption bands. The spectrum can therefore be assembled and optimised like a modular system.
What good is that now to me and my reptiles? Justified question and easy to answer. The combination spectrum of the Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot daylight lamp includes just about everything "good light" that is needed in terrariums. It contains the important parts of the light spectrum that terrarium animals find in their natural habitats and is therefore perfectly suited for the photosynthesis of terrarium plants. UV-A radiation is also present in the light of the Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot, and this is known to be indispensable when it comes to healthy, species-appropriate reptile husbandry. UV-A stimulates the reproductive behaviour of reptiles and increases general health and well-being. With the Exo Terra Daylight Basking Spot you can get a piece of real reptile health into your terrarium.
