Lorikeets and honeyeaters, unlike other birds, have a brush like tip at the end of their tongue. This brush tongue is an adaptation for gathering pollen, nectar, manna, honeydew and lerp. Lorikeets and honeyeaters also include fruit and insects in their diets. They obtain essential protein and fatty acids from the pollen or insect component of their diet and carbohydrate from the simple and complex sugars found in nectar and fruit. Complete Lorikeet is a complete balanced diet for all lorikeets and lories and can be fed wet or dry.
The packaging is the same as the usual products except for a sticker which indicates whether the product is red or yellow/green colour enhanced. These are specialised products designed for certain species of birds which are known to lose their colour in captivity eg softbills, honeyeaters, robins, chats, some species of finches and other insectivorous species. These species tend to be kept by zoos, wildlife parks and specialist aviculturists. These products do not apply to the majority of commonly kept birds that are available the pet industry.
