Zoo Med's Avian Sun 5.0 self ballasted compact fluorescent lamp 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. Using lighting that emits UVA can help curb feather picking and other destructive behaviors. Without UVA, birds are deprived of the full color spectrum they see in nature and are colorblind! Energy saving bulb uses only 26 watts and screws into any incandescent socket. For best results, use in Zoo Med's AvianSun™ Deluxe Floor Lamp. Shipping weight: 1/2 lb.
