The Arcadia 7% Shadedweller ProT5 Lighting Kit is a product designed for reptile habitats, specifically for animals requiring lower UVB exposure levels. Such as Leopard Geckos, Royal Pythons and other crepuscular / Nocteral species 

UVB lighting is essential for reptiles as it helps them produce vitamin D3, crucial for proper calcium metabolism and overall health. However, not all reptiles require the same levels of UVB exposure. Some reptiles, such as certain species of snakes or nocturnal species, naturally inhabit areas with less direct sunlight and, therefore, require lower levels of UVB radiation.

The Arcadia 7% Shadedweller ProT5 Lighting Kit is designed to provide a lower UVB light suitable for reptiles requiring a shaded or lower UVB environment. The kit typically includes a T5 fluorescent bulb that emits UVB light at a 7% output, which is considered lower than standard UVB bulbs. Additionally, it may consist of a fixture, reflector, and necessary mounting hardware.

It's important to note that the specific requirements for UVB lighting can vary among reptile species. It's crucial to research the specific needs of your reptile and consult with a veterinarian or reptile expert to ensure you provide the appropriate lighting conditions for your pet's health and well-being.
