UVB lighting on snakes and pythons is not a necessary element for successful keeping. High output UVB lights should never be used on any python and no UVB light should ever be used on any albino species of pythons or snakes. We recommend the use of low output UVB on all Diamond Pythons as many keepers believe they have seen good results will this particular species. Low output (2.0) globes have also shown to make the colours in many pythons to be much more enhanced. A mesh cover should always be used used over any globe with larger animals to ensure your snake cannot break the globe and do damage to itself.
