To mimic a reptiles natural habitat it is essential to provide the correct level of UVB. UVB bulbs for years have been measured in percentage, commonly 5%, 6%, 10% or 12%. This was a very old way of measuring the amount of UVB put out by a bulb and with the standard of today's bulbs being far better, the percentage calculation simply isn't good enough.
This is why we now measure the strength of UV bulbs using the Ferguson Zone.
