The Zilla Mini Compact Fluorescent Desert Reptile Bulb is an energy-efficient light source that also provides essential UVB rays to help create a healthy environment for desert-dwelling lizards, tortoises, snakes, and amphibians.
This mini CFL bulb provides excellent UVB penetration, making up for the UVB your pet does not receive from the sun. UVB is very important for reptiles and plays a crucial role in preventing or reversing Metabolic Bone Disease, a serious condition that can lead to reptile death. The bulb's slim, low-profile design saves space and is perfect for mini light fixtures in smaller terrariums. This bulb is designed for use in the Zilla Mini Heat and UVB Fixture (see below).
