Feeding Insect Eating Reptiles

An insectivore diet consists completely or partially of insects. Amphibians like frogs and toads, some turtles and snakes, and many lizards are all insectivores. This client education handout explores many practical matters related to feeding insect prey from types (like mealworms and waxworms), size, and number, as well as toxic insects that should never be fed. Techniques used to improve calcium content from gut-loading to dusting are also discussed.
