Is my lizard getting enough UVB?

    Is my lizard getting enough UVB?

    hey guys, I have a quick question. If my pet lizard's terrarium is right next to the window is he getting enough of the UV rays he needs? He has a night and day time heat lamp so heat isn't an issue, just need to know if he is getting enough UVB. Ive only has him for 3 days so it shouldn't be too big of an issue if I go buy a uv light tomorrow. (He's an armadillo lizard if you need to know).
    Thanks

    UV rays do not penetrate glass windows, water and fine mesh. Placing it beside a window with an already existing heating system will only result in a high air temp inside the enclosure that could prove more lethal than beneficial.
