i'm not sure if they are from the same parents. the zoo i got them from had them all together in one large enclosure. i picked two that looked slightly different in age and in color...im hoping i got a mating pair ;) we'll see.

Yay! The name stick- and everyone seems to like them, I guess we are all from a Land Before Time generation :)
Ducky to Petrie:
"But you're a flier,
not a faller." hehe

cam i've never tried the combo bulb...
their enclosure is 4ft by 3ft so i had to get a bulb that would cover such a large area...they say UVB is only effective up to 20 inches

The first link is just a retailer that has a good description of the TRex updated bulb.
The second link is a fantastic link that I am slowly wrapping my brain around. There are a couple that tested well that may be of help in large settings...however if you have year round access to the real thing you probably do not need to sweat it as much as those of us who have decided to call the midwest home...brrrr!
I would love to find a combo we could use we have three different bulbs over Calvin's little 3'x2' home.

A side note, for anyone with a screen lid (ie. reptarium users etc) the screen filters up to 50% of the uva/uvb light.

the main site has a ton of menu items to sift through as well.

Thanks Cam the links really help. Yeah this year I have 4 habitats to light so one bulb or so for each would sure be a savings.
