What is Color Temperature?

Measured in kelvins (K), color temperature is a way for us to compare the color of light produced by artificial means to that of what we're trying to mimic in nature – mainly, daylight. Daylight has a kelvin measure of approximately 5780K. In reptile and amphibian enclosures, a color spectrum of 5500-6500K is ideal for most species of diurnal reptiles and amphibians.
