Fluorescent Bulbs for Reptiles
Fluorescent reptile bulbs contain both UVA and UVB spectrum in the bulbs, which are important for the survival of non nocturnal animals. A UV light helps aid a reptile with calcium absorption which will stave off the onset of metabolic bone disease. Metabolic bone disease is a horrible thing, as the jawbone and other bones of an animal become flimsy and rubbery and they suffer terribly. Using a proper desert or tropical fluorescent bulb will save the animal from that fate. This is very common in iguanas, but does effect other animals such as bearded dragons as well.
