About this Product

Save when you buy these two products together

Buy the fully adjustable floor light (designed for use with Zoo Med`s Avian Sun Compact Fluorescent Bulb) and the Fluorescent Bulb together and save! Provide the correct and essential UV level to allow your bird to see as nature intended!

Providing the correct levels of UVB allows birds to synthesise Vitamin D3 in their skin, or through a special process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.

Birds have specialised retinas that enable them to see UVA, helping them to recognise mates, locate food, and identify different species. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour blind. Unlock their world and let your bird see it in full colour!

UVA is essential for the psychological health of your bird. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours.

The reflected lamp should be fitted above the head and not side on into the eye.

The light should be fitted 10-12" from the bird's head when it is sitting on the topmost or basking perch. The special UV coating is designed to last 12 months when used for an average of 8 - 10 hours per day. It is recommended to provide a break for an hour or two to allow afternoon resting. It is flicker free.

UVB - Researchers have found that most birds benefit from UVB. Exposure to UVB allows birds to synthesis Vitamin D3 in the skin through a special process involving the preening gland. Vitamin D3 is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.

UVA - "visible light": Birds have specialised retinas that enable them to see UVA, helping them to recognise mates, locate food and identify different species. Using lighting that emits UVA can help curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours. Without UVA birds are deprived of the full colour spectrum they see in nature and are colour-blind! UVA is necessary for the psychological health of your bird.

The reflected lamp should be fitted above the head and not side on into the eye.
The lamp should be fitted 10-12" from the bird's head when it is sitting on the topmost or basking perch.
