of Medicine show that Zoo Med's Reptisun 5.0 UVB and Iguana
Light 5.0 UVB bulbs induce 7-DHC conversion to Pre-vitamin
D3 at a rate 23 times greater than the next leading UVB
Wavelength penetrates a full 10-12" from bulb's surface. Bulbs
last a minimum of one year before diminishing wavelength.

(DESCRIPTIONS FROM THE ZOO-MED WEBSITE)
This is THE
preferred UVB light by most chamowners.
This Zoo Med
infrared nocturnal heat lamp shows a Jackson's chameleon
under the heat. Nearly all chameleon species INCLUDING
Jackson's DO NOT need night heat. They require a night time
temperature drop of up to 20ºF.
A simple clamp
light with the correct bulb (60-100 watt depending on
distance and cage size) should be sufficient to produce the
required temps. The basking area is usually around 100ºF
with cooler areas as low as 80ºF. Cage design and species
will determine the requirements.

are MUST HAVE items. Cheap timers like the one on the left
work great for most uses. I use the digital timer on the
bottom for my misting system. it is more accurate on short
(4 - 5 minutes). The others do great for turning lights and
humidifiers off and on .The thermometer pictured on the
bottom is a Radio Shack model. I have seen similar products
in Wal-mart for $15.00. It gives you humidity and two
temperature readings PLUS it stores the high and low, which
is great for long term monitoring. Well worth the extra
money go to Wal-mart, Home Depot, or
Radio Shack to purchase.
