ShadeDweller 7% UV-B has been thoughtfully designed around the needs of crepuscular species such as leopard geckos where the distance to basking is around 12” 30cm.
Correct levels of UV energy
ShadeDweller 7% UV-B has been thoughtfully designed around the needs of crepuscular species such as leopard geckos where the distance to basking is around 12” 30cm. In this way this easy to use fitting will allow the animal to obtain essential UV energy in a safe and effective way.
For those of us that keep these species in smaller or more shallow enclosures where obtaining the optimal distance to basking of 8-12” 20/30cm is not possible, and for those that keep crepuscular Arboreal species and choose to decorate to the top of the cage then the ShadeDweller-Arboreal fitting could be the better choice.
As always as keepers we must ensure that we provide energy towards the developed needs of a species in a safe and effective way whilst minimising the risks of both over or under exposure.
This easy to use professional lighting kit can be easily fitted into a wooden vivarium with the fitting kit that is included, or, it can placed above the mesh of a glass vivarium for climbing species such as Crested geckos where the suggested distance to basking is available.
Allowing species to self-regulate
The ShadeDweller ProT5 kit will help you to provide adequate levels of essential UV energy beneath the lighting kit and over a targeted area. This will allow you as the keeper to provide targeted areas of light and shade in which your animal can self-regulate within standard sized enclosures. ShadeDweller ProT5 is fast start and ‘flicker-free’.
For far too long Crepuscular animals such as Leopard Geckos have not had dedicated lighting systems, ShadeDweller™ by Arcadia Reptile seeks to right this wrong. Partner ShadeDweller products up with the Arcadia Reptile ‘Deep Heat Projector’®,or Halogen Flood lamp for the most usable and effective source of Bioavailable heat.
Perfect for species
ShadeDwellerProT5 is the perfect choice for the following species living in larger enclosures that provide a greater distance between the lamp and the animal at the basking point, this typically being 8-12” 20-30cm:
- Leopard Geckos
- Crested Geckos
- Day Geckos (small)
- Hatchling Snakes
Create bespoke systems
Pair ShadeDwellerPro or ShadeDwellerPro-Arboreal with Genuine Arcadia Reptile JungleDawn-LED Bar for increased visible light and high PAR levels which will ensure fantastic plant growth. ShadeDweller, ProT5 and JungleDawn-LED Bar should be provided alongside a stat controlled heat source.

How We Ship
*video coming soon*
Safe Shipping Weather
We will only ship to your home or work when weather in route is 35-90 degrees
Fahrenheit. This temperature range is extended to 25-95 degrees Fahrenheit upon
arrival if you opt to have your live animals held for pickup at a main FedEx Shipping Center. Animals must be picked up within 4 hours of arrival for live arrival guarantee to apply.
Orders generally arrive by 12:00 PM
Typically the delivery time is before 12:00 PM (your local time) in most metro areas, but some remote areas may not be guaranteed to arrive until "end of day", which is usually late afternoon or early evening at the latest (4:30PM).
FedEx Drivers WILL NOT wait for you to come to the door.
Generally speaking, FedEx will quickly knock or ring the doorbell, and leave your
package near your front door. While this sometimes seems crazy to people who are new to having reptiles shipped to them, but this is industry standard. We purposely do not require signature, as we do not want to risk having reptiles go back on a hot (or cold) truck for the rest of the day, in the event you don't make it to the door in time. This is for the safety of the reptiles. Although we don't require a signature for delivery, we can still obtain GPS delivery coordinates and other information when needed, in order to determine where a package was left and verify delivery.
