ShadeDweller™ by Arcadia Reptile is a dedicated 8w SO-T5 lamp specifically designed for Shade Dwelling (crepuscular) species whilst also being suitable for many diurnal species living in shallow enclosures.
ShadeDweller™ uses the very latest in German engineering to produce a high quality, crisp and very stable projection of UV rich light for one whole year of use.
ShadeDweller™ is energy efficient, drawing just 8watts and measuring 12”/30cm in length. Perfect for creating usable areas of ‘light and shade’ for the accurate and safe self-regulation of the essential D3 cycles.
ShadeDweller™ produces the perfect ratio of 17% UV-A and 7% UV-B for effective and natural Vitamin D3 production where an average UV Index of 0.80-1.00 can be achieved at 10”/25cm from the lamp. This highly engineered lamp is perfect for use with crepuscular species including the Leopard Gecko, Crested Gecko, many Amphibians and Inverts. ShadeDweller can also be used with many diurnal species of snake that can easily climb to regulate their own level of exposure in shallow vivaria such corn, king, milk and rat snakes.
The Arcadia Reptile ‘ShadeDweller™’ boosts an output of around 400 lumens and maintains a colour of 6k Kelvin, while ensuring a crisp and very natural CRI of over 90.
ShadeDweller™ by Arcadia Reptile is available as standard in two complete lighting kits and as a replacement lamp which can be used in any 8watt T5 system such as the original Arcadia Reptile UVMiniKit or 8 standard controllers.
For far too long Crepuscular animals have not had dedicated lighting systems, ShadeDweller by Arcadia Reptile seeks to right this wrong. Partner up with the Arcadia Reptile 50w Deep Heat Projector as the most usable and effective source of heat.
