Naturally Nocturnal Exo Terra’s Full Moon and Scorpion Light Provide Natural Nighttime Lighting For Reptiles, Amphibians, Scorpions and Other Invertebrates

May 28, 2015

FullMoonLightMANSFIELD, Mass. – Nocturnal reptiles, amphibians, scorpions and other invertebrates should never be left in the dark – nor should they have unnaturally bright lighting at night. Exo Terra’s new Full Moon and Scorpion Light provide a natural nocturnal ambience that encourages nighttime foraging and mating behaviors. Available from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp., the new lights create realistic nightfall lighting and temperatures.

Pitch dark or bright lighting during late night hours are disorienting settings for pet reptiles and amphibians. Exo Terra’s Full Moon is designed to simulate natural moonlight in terrariums – The soft light mimics a moonlight shimmer, enabling pets to be observed without disturbing their nocturnal behavior. The low heat emission of the Full Moon also simulates a natural temperature drop inside terrariums. This duplication of a normal habitat encourages nightly foraging for food and stimulates mating behaviors.

The Full Moon is also simple to install – it’s placed on the inside of screen covers and held in place by a strong magnet. The low heat, 1 watt emission and its automatic turn-on when lights dim also mean a low energy cost for consumers.ScorpionLight

Exo Terra’s new Scorpion Light is also meant to promote normal nighttime behavior by emulating a natural nocturnal environment. Made for invertebrates, the UV light makes certain scorpions, spiders and insects glow in the dark. It lights up some spider webs and instigates spider mating behavior. The light consumes only 2 watts and does not interfere with natural nighttime temperature drops.

Available from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp., the Exo Terra Full Moon light is available with an MSRP of $33.99. The Exo Terra Scorpion Light is available for an MSRP of $41.99.
