Our animals hang out with us all the time. They love animal education television shows. Here in this video, they are watching Viper Keeper. We love that this dragon pays attention when Viper Keeper talks about UVB lights.
Bearded dragons come from the hot desert areas of the Australian outback. Because of this, bearded dragons receive UVA and UVB radiation naturally from the sun. Radiation is essential for the health of the bearded dragon, so it is important to understand bearded dragon lighting requirements.
It is necessary that your pet receives at least 10 to 12 hours of exposure to the lighting each day. Failure to provide UVA and UVB rays can lead to many health issues including [su_highlight]mental problems, loss of appetite and metabolic bone disease[/su_highlight]. Make sure the bulb you choose offers at least five to seven percent UVA and UVB radiation.
Since bearded dragons need this radiation from the sun, we must replicate it when beardies are kept captive indoors. The best way to reproduce these rays is by specialized, full-spectrum lighting supplied by fluorescent and mercury vapor light bulbs. These full-spectrum bulbs are readily available at most pet stores.
