A pure, natural product from the sea, Vitakraft VITAFit Cuttlebone is an important cage accessory for all caged and aviary birds, helping to maintain your birds health and provide an essential source of calcium to keep your bird’s beak health in good condition.
Did you know? Cuttlebones are not actually bones, but rather the internal shell from the Cuttlefish, a member of the cephalopod family of sea creatures. The Cuttlefish is actually a mollusk, related to the Octopus, Squid and Nautilus, and a cuttlebone is an internal shell with gas-filled chambers that keep the Cuttlefish buoyant and able to manoeuvre in the water!
