Special UVA and UVB compact fluorescent lamp for use with all captive birds. UVB allows birds to synthesize Vitamin D3 in their skin. UVA helps to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviors. This self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamp from Zoo Med allows you to provide your birds with true full spectrum light, including UVB and UVA, just like they get in nature! This unique light provides birds with safe levels of beneficial UVB and UVA for physical and psychological health. UVB enables birds to synthesize Vitamin D3 for proper calcium metabolism, which is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones, and egg production. UVA is visible to birds, enabling them to recognize mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are essentially colorblind! Made with special UV transmitting quartz glass.
