Product information

Nature as a model
Terrarium animals are cold-blooded animals, which are strongly dependent on light, particularly on the quality and intensity of the light. Activity, food intake, digestion or rest phases are influenced by the change of day and night and the intensity of light. Depending on the light source, there are differences in output and quality of the light.

FAQ
Is it normal that my JBL Solar UV-Spot plus switches itself off?

The UV spotlight shouldn’t switch itself off. This either indicates a defect (as is most often the case) or otherwise insufficient heat dissipation in the proximity of the spot, which then causes it to switch itself off (overheating protection).

Do terrarium animals know when they have received enough UV radiation? Or in other words: Do the animals withdraw into the shade after they have received sufficient UV radiation from the UV light source or can they get sunburn?

Here it depends on the species and behaviour. Animals which can be exposed to too much UV radiation in the wild, like mountain animals (some chameleon species are examples of this), know when they have received enough UV-radiation. This is based on a variety of factors (amount of light in lux, humidity). Other animal groups, such as those living on the ground in the rain forest, never receive too much UV radiation in their natural habitat. These animals would be harmed by permanent, strong UV radiation.
