The Arcadia Parrot Pro UV Waterproof Bird Lamp and Holder provides all the UVA and UVB pet birds requires to flourish in an indoor environment.
This 24 Watt UV Flood Compact Lamp emits 2.4% UVB produced over a focusable area so birds can produce and use Vitamin D3, which is essential for proper calcium metabolism. This is necessary for normal growth, maintenance of strong bones and egg production.
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. .
Bird`s eyes can be very sensitive, so Arcadia have made sure that when the light is switch on and powered up the Compact Bird Lamp doesn’t flicker. The lamp and reflective holder are also waterproof which means you can keep the light on whilst showering or misting your bird.
The Arcadia Parrot Pro UV Waterproof Bird Lamp and Holder can easily be attach to ceilings or walls making it ideal for use with aviaries or in bird rooms. A stand is listed separately.
Birds and Parrots 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.
UVA is essential for the psychological health of pet birds. Using lighting that emits UVA can also help to curb feather picking and other destructive behaviours.
Light for Life is Arcadia`s motto, so help unlock their world and let your pet birds live it in full colour.
