Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Evo SET Jungle 70W, BSS-J70

The Lucky Reptile Bright Sun Set range contain all you need to set up these revolutionary metal halide lamps in vivariums and are a real “plug ‘n’ play solution” consisting of a metal halide lamp, electronic ballast/starter and high temperature-rated ceramic holder.

These lamps have been specially developed for use with reptiles and provide very high levels of light and UVB without excessive heat. As with Mercury Vapour lamps they cannot be used with a thermostat, so care needs to be taken to select the appropriate wattage and installation for the enclosure to prevent over-heating. They are available in 35W, 50W and 70W in both Jungle and Desert versions all at the same great price.

The Bright Sun UV Jungle was developed especially for reptiles from tropical and forest regions. It has a slightly lower UV performance than the Bright Sun UV Desert, taking the different conditions in the natural habitat of these animals into account. Branches and leaves filter quite a lot of UV, so the animals do not experience the full intensity of the sun. In addition, it has to be considered that arboreal animals will usually be able to get quite close to a lamp inside a vivarium.

Since UV radiation is potentially dangerous and the UV intensity at 10 cm distance is 5 times higher than at 30 cm, we have consciously reduced the UV output.

The spectrum was adapted to the natural conditions of forest regions. With 4000K the colour temperature is warmer than the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert.

Tests have shown that tropical lizards, like water dragons, prefer the warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle over the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert. The warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle will also promote the colours of plants, causing a nice forest ambiance inside the vivarium.
