Back Zoo Nature Discovery Bedding is extracted from the bark of the coconut and is a very ecological ground cover. It is 100% natural, biodegradable and therefore good for the environment.
Back Zoo Nature Discovery Bedding is in many ways the best choice when it comes to ground cover for birds. For example, it retains moisture without becoming moldy. This has positive effects on humidity levels.
Most birds need a good humidity level of around 60% or higher. In many households the humidity (especially in winter) is not much higher than 40%.
Tip: By choosing Back Zoo Nature Bedding as a ground cover, and moistening it with, for example, the Super Fog II, the air humidity will be increased considerably.
In addition, birds can dig in this Back Zoo Nature Discovery Bedding without the bedding getting next to the cage. It is a lot more compact than sand or beech chips, so it doesn't get kicked up/down as quickly.
The Back Zoo Nature Discovery Bedding encourages natural behavior, because birds love to dig! Many of the foods they eat in their natural habitat are found on the ground. If sand is used, the bird may suffer from eye/airway problems, and beech chips can easily become moldy, which is also harmful to the bird.
