The Bright Sun UV Jungle is specifically designed for tropical species. It has a slightly lower UV output than the Bright Sun UV Desert to pay tribute to the conditions in the natural habitat and the way of life of the animals. The leaves and branches in the rainforest filter out some of the UV light, so the animals do not experience the full intensity of the sun. Additionally, it is important to note that arboreal animals in terrariums often have the ability to get very close to the lamps. Since UV radiation generally has a potential for danger and the UV intensity at a distance of 10 cm is 5 times as high as at a distance of 30 cm, the UV component was deliberately reduced.
The spectrum was adapted to the natural conditions in forest regions. The color temperature is 4000K, which is significantly warmer than the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert. Tests have shown that tropical lizards such as water dragons prefer the warmer light of the Bright Sun UV Jungle to the daylight of the Bright Sun UV Desert, regardless of the UV content.
In addition, the green colors of plants are better brought out by the warmer light, creating a real forest ambience in the terrarium.
