Live & Frozen Nutrition

Live and frozen nutrition are two key options for feeding reptiles. Live prey, like insects or rodents, can offer enrichment and stimulate natural hunting behaviors, but they come with potential health risks. Frozen prey, while lacking the engagement of live feeding, is a convenient and safer choice, as it eliminates the risk of parasites or diseases. Proper thawing and temperature adjustment are essential when offering frozen prey. Regardless of the choice, a balanced diet tailored to the reptile’s specific needs is crucial for their well-being and longevity.

Live or Frozen Rats

Live or frozen rat feeders are crucial for reptile owners. Live rats are engaging but come with risks, while frozen options are safer and convenient. Proper thawing is essential. Both are vital for a balanced diet.

Live or Frozen Mice

Mice feeders are essential for pet owners who keep reptiles and birds as they provide a reliable source of nutrition. These dedicated caregivers ensure that their pets receive a natural and balanced diet, contributing to their health and well-being.


Crickets are popular feeder insects for reptiles and amphibians due to their protein-rich nutrition and ease of care. They encourage natural hunting behaviors and can be gut-loaded for added nutrients, but it’s important to choose an appropriate size for the reptile’s diet.
