UVB Turtle Lighting

In the wild Australian turtles are exposed to ultraviolet light (UVA and UVB) every day. Absolutely essential to their health and growth, UVB plays a key role in the production of Vitamin D3, which is necessary in the absorption and metabolism of calcium, as well as other essential vitamins and minerals. Vitamin D3 deficiency can result in limited shell growth, metabolic bone disease, soft shell, and often, a premature death. Supplying appropriate UVB lighting in your turtles habitat is one of the many important responsibilities you carry as the owner of a turtle. At Amazing Amazon we do not sell or recommend cheap China made UVB globes as we believe it is too important that your turtle/s receive the very best quality lights. UVB globes cannot penetrate glass and should be replaced every 6 months. For juvenile turtles we recommend a 10.0 UVB and for adult turtles a 5.0 UVB or 10.0 UVB globe is recommended. Giving your turtle some natural direct sunlight on a regular basis is also a must.
