I am sorry for my ignorance but what is a mega ray? Is it some type of basking light? Shannon

It sounds like a very good bulb. With good uv readings. I am thinking of trying it. Is it true that too much uv can be dangerous? Shannon

The only shaky ground regarding the use of UV, to my knowledge, is based on eye damage. Persoanlly, i don't really understand the science of it all to fully comprehend, but i'm pretty sure that i've never heard of UV being detremental to the health of any lizard.
