Arcadia Support Portal :: Why does my bearded dragon constantly jump at the UV lamp?

Why does my bearded dragon constantly jump at the UV lamp?

A. The Arcadia D3 basking lamp is a mercury vapour lamp. These are commonly known as “combi lamps”. These are a self ballasted lamp that can be run from any ceramic E27 fitting of the correct rating. They produce light, heat and are also a source of strong UVA and UVB. Many keepers just use a combi lamp as the total source of light, heat and UV. As technology has improved we have been able to look at the limitations of many lamps. Combi lamps by definition of manufacture have a very narrow area of emission. So when used in small enclosures they can be used safely and will provide great results. We do however now advise that combi lamps are used in partnership with a fluorescent lamp. This will in turn open the area of emission and allow the animal to regulate properly. Don’t forget reptiles can see these power gradients and will move around the enclosure to obtain the power they require.

Mercury vapour lamps emit strong UV right underneath the lamp, this means that the animal would have to spend long periods of time basking under the hottest part of the lamp for it to be able to obtain the energy it requires. We suggest that a small high output T5 is fitted above the table with the right reflector. Choose a lamp that is about two thirds of the length of the enclosure and fit the lamp starting in the hot/ basking zone. This will then provide a good background UV pattern and a hot/strong basking zone under the D3 basking lamp. The Arcadia D3 basking lamp is available in both 100watt and 160w.
