I have an 8 year old iguana and have been using this light since she was just a couple of months old. I learned right away that correct lighting is very important for green iguanas (esp. very young ones) and this light has kept her healthy and happy for years - just be sure to change it about every 5 or 6 months.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Zoo Med Repti Sun 5.0 Fluorescent Lamps is great. I bought it for my Cherry Head Red Foot Tortoise. I recommend it for any reptile. It helps my tortoise regulate its own D3.

This is the only light I will use for my bearded dragon, Bramble. I did research before purchasing a flourescent light for him. I found out that some people are actually using too high a percentage of UV radiation for their reptiles. You might think more is better, but reptiles can get cancer, especially in their eyes, from constant exposure to high UV rays. A 5% bulb should do very well, as it is not too much, nor too little. It will provide the benefits your reptile gets from sunbathing himself!

When I adopted my bearded dragon, Kayda, I didn't know what lighting was most recommended for her. After doing plenty of research, and reading I learned that the Reptisun 5.0 was most heavily advised. I bought the bulb, almost six months ago, it's still working, and Kayda is still as happy as ever, and that's quite happy.
I would recommend this to a friend!
