Mice are an excellent frozen reptile food and form the staple diet of most Colubrid snakes. We offer a large variety of sizes and quantities to suit everyone.
Mice are the perfect long-term diet for most smaller species of snakes such as Corn Snakes, Rat Snakes, King Snakes, Milk Snakes, Western Hognose and other similar sized Colubrid. They are also ideal for feeding to smaller species of Boas and Pythons, such as Rosy and Kenyan Sand Boas.
Starting off your snake hatchlings with Day Old Pinkie Mice, working your way up to the large and jumbo sizes as the snake grows is standard practice for many Colubrid species. Some species such as Royal Pythons can be a little more selective in what they eat as hatchlings, if they refuse Rats initially, Mice or Multimammate are a great alternative.
Day Old Pinkie Mice are high in fat, making them ideal for young reptiles with a lot of growing to do. Adult mice are generally healthier than young rats of a similar size due to the ratio of muscle to fat, making these a nutritious food source for your reptiles. Although adult Corn Snakes for example will happily eat a Weaner Rat, it is much higher in fat than a Jumbo Mouse, which over time can cause problems with fatty liver and other obesity related issues.
Mice are also widely accepted by raptors and other birds of prey; many Monitor Lizards and Amphibian species also enjoy mice as part of a balanced diet.
We supply all sizes in a variety of quantities to suit your needs; whether you have one or one hundred, we stock everything your reptiles require. We pride ourselves on the quality of our rodents and will only sell foods that we are happy to use for our own collections.
