Reptile feed & nutrition in the Maxi Zoo online shop
Terrarium animal and reptile feed: crickets, flour mites, etc.
Reptile and terrarium fans know that the right food mix is important so that the animals can develop well and remain healthy and fit for a long time. Freshness and variety of the food is of primary importance not only for herbivores. Naturally, the daily diet should also be as free from pesticides as possible. Carnivores, on the other hand, need suitable prey. The following generally applies, especially in the case of live food – the larger the scaly companion, the larger the prey should also be.
With the right terrarium animal and reptile food, you are ensuring a balanced diet and providing your animals not only with the important vitamins and minerals that they need, but you are also helping to cover their daily requirements for protein, carbohydrates, fats and fibre. Thanks to live feeding with suitable prey, you are also promoting species-appropriate hunting behaviour and keeping your terrarium inhabitants on their toes.
Main feed and supplements
Vitamins and minerals are usually given as supplements and are added to the main feed. Depending on the reptile species, the latter are usually fed in the form of live food, frozen food, food plants, wet food and/or pellet food. The frequency of feeding also depends on the individual needs of the reptile species. As a rule, food is fed once or twice a week.
On the one hand, food plants can be a direct part of the terrarium planting and at the same time enrich the ambience. On the other hand, plant food can or must also be added, if necessary. Fruits and vegetables are also suitable depending on the type of reptile. Frozen food is sometimes a good alternative to live food, as frozen food can be easily stored in the freezer. In addition, the risk of injury is reduced as frozen food is naturally less resistant than live food – apart from flour mites. As soon as you know what your pet needs, you can order the appropriate food and provide culinary diversity in the terrarium.
