 How to Tell

I just got a new light for my anoles. I forgot to look at what kind of light it was before I burned the box. How can I tell if it’s a UVA or UVB light? Plz hel, ASAP!!!!

Burned the box? Whoa, that’s a bit nuts. Anyways, UVB usually has a bluish tint to it-- or at least mine do. The ones I bought are made in Germany, and has a spot for you to write the date of first-use in on because you should change them every six months to a year. There should be something printed at the base of the bulb, on that plastic part that the ballast is in if it’s a CFL type.
