Which animals is this light suitable for?

This bulb has been designed to cater for the needs of crepuscular species. Crepuscular species tend to hide away during the day and prefer dawn and dusk for activity, so this lower light is more natural for them, whilst still providing a suitable UV-B provision. Crepuscular species include Leopard geckos, Crested geckos and many snake species, such as Corn snakes, King snakes and Milk snakes. Many of these species enjoy shallow enclosures with more natural lighting, giving them plenty of rest between active periods.

What type of bulb is this?

This bulb is a T5 bulb that has been designed for the ProT5 ShadeDweller professional lighting kit and the MiniT5 ShadeDweller fitting kit. While the bulb has been purpose-built, it is still suitable for any T5 8W Controller or the Arcadia 8W UV MiniKit. To get the most from your bulb you will need a kit with a removable curved reflector.
