The warm end of Will's enclosure has UVB rays everywhere according to my Solar UVB meter. Depending how I hold it, the meter can read 107 UVBs from the coil fluorescent. The heat is consistent and ok at 97 on his basking limb. Should I be concerned about too many UVB rays?
Thank you both! I believe the the fluorescent coils are very much worth trying. My meter readings seem to verify what PowerSun is saying about their flood Merc lamps. UVB just fills the area if the bulb isn't too distant. I'll measure the output if anyone would like.
It has been noted that UV exposure is still readily available under shaded areas though the intensity of the UV is less prominent. If the iguana has some sort of sanctuary that it can go to , to removes itself from direct exposure, then it will do so if it feels it is necessary.
