Box Turtle Lighting Options

To keep your box turtle healthy and happy, you’ll want to make sure you provide both visible and UV light. Most bulbs give off visible light, of course. Beyond that, you have a lot of options.

Some bulbs are strictly for light, visible and/or UV. Others also provide heat.

Here are the reviews we have up so far, including light only and light plus heat bulbs. Plus some accessories to help you set up a safe, healthy lighting system:

ReptiSun 5 High Output UVB Lamp (T5) – Emits more UVB rays that can reach farther than the standard 5.0 lamp. Perfect for larger/taller habitats.
