Why is UVB important?
Reptiles need UVB for Vitamin D production and calcium metabolism. Without UVB, reptiles can develop Metabolic Bone Disease in 6 months or less. UVB, along with proper temperatures, will enable your reptiles to make Vitamin D and process calcium from their diet.
Why is UVA important?
Reptiles and amphibians can see things that humans can't. UVA is part of the rainbow of colors that reptiles can see. UVA helps to increase animal activity levels, appetite, and reproductive behaviors. Without UVA, they are color blind!
Note: Always follow all safety instructions when setting up and operating your terrarium light hood.

Great products and very pleased it only took a couple of days to receive my order. Oh, and great prices too!
Arrived promptly. Quality light with T5 5.0 bulb included. I was impressed by how thin hood actually is.
Sleek, quality product. Easy swap to a 10.0 bulb for my beardie!
This is the second fixture of this type that I have purchased for my bearded dragons, and is in my opinion the best UVB fixture available. The second one I ordered had some flickering problems but PetMountain was SUPER quick to replace it for me for free! Replacement fixture works perfectly! I highly recommend ordering this fixture from this site! Great customer service also!
This is a great product. I have noticed with this new UV bulb that my gecko has been firing up a lot darker and brighter.
Just got my new Zoo Med HO T5 light fixture and the bulb works great. Came real fast too. Will be ordering again, thank you PetMountain.
I was a little skeptical buying this as some reviews explained how this light could be hit or miss, but I am SO glad I bought it despite that. My bearded dragon is much happier to explore the entire vivarium rather than just the side with the old UV coil bulb. She also isn't squinting as much with this hood/light and is much more active. The hood has a slot to insert the bulb's 2 prongs, which need to be rotated 90 degrees to "snap" into place. I believe many of the reviewers do not know this, so the connection to the bulb would be hit or miss if not installed properly. I was scared to rotate it so much because of how delicate glass bulbs can be, but I promise it won't break. I would buy again!
Order received in good condition. I LOVE the 48" terrarium hood and uvb bulb. I keep box turtles and tortoises indoors as need dictates. With the 4' light I can place 3 large plastic storage tubs housing the animals side-by-side under the hood and they each get plenty of light. The new T-5 bulb is more space conscious. Thanks for your recommendation.
You can't beat this lite for UVB and UVA output. My bearded dragon is much more active under this light - it's a must buy from Pet Mountain.
This light works very well. It brightened up my beardie's tank and he is now more active and energetic like he should be. Fits perfectly on my 75 gallon tank and is low profile and looks awesome with it. Would recommend this to anyone who needs a tube light for longer tanks!
This was my first purchase from Pet Mountain. Price-wise, the Zoo Med 48 inch Reptisun T5 HO terrarium hood (with a free 54 watt 46 inch Reptisun T5 HO lamp) could not be beat. The service was great, as was the packing of fragile items. This was for a bearded dragon, who is now enjoying SO much more beneficial light in his habitat. I am SO PLEASED with Pet Mountain.
I was shopping around for terrarium hoods and decided to give this one a shot. I purchased a couple of the 36" length first. They fit perfectly where I needed them. Afterwards I decided to get a few of the 30" length as well. These have been an outstanding product so far. Not sure if it's the lighting or not, but my geckos (hatchlings) have had an increase in their appetites. They are a very nice sleek & slim design that fit in tight spaces very well. You don't have so much wasted shelving space due to the thickness of standard hoods.
Ordered this hood for xtall/xlarge exo terra terrarium. Very impressed with style and quality. Looks great on terrarium and provides a great deal of light. You won't be disappointed.
