Reptile Food


Guide to Safe Fruits and VegetablesBeautiful Dragons. The website isn’t much to look at, but this guide is the most comprehensive assessment of appropriate fruits and vegetables for feeding your herbivore/omnivore. Take it with you to the grocery store!


CricketsPremium Crickets. Crickets are well-known for coming with a variety of undesirable “extras”: spiders, beetle larvae, parasites, etc. Premium Crickets prides themselves on delivering the healthiest feeder crickets available, without the “extras.” They might be a little pricier than other cricket breeders, but higher quality feeders mean healthier reptiles.

Dubia RoachesDubi Deli. After a lot of research, these people offer the best price per roach. Shipping is reasonable, and they cut great deals if you’re looking for extra large (1.25-1.5 inch) roaches. I spend $25-40 every 2 months to feed two adult female beardies.

Feeder Insects (in general) Rainbow Mealworms. They sell mealworms, superworms, crickets, fruit flies, hornworms, phoenix worms, earthworms, fly larvae, wax worms, dubia roaches, and madagascar roaches. In other words, if you’re looking to try new feeders for your lizard, this is the way to go. Their prices for roaches and phoenix worms aren’t better than Dubi Deli or Symton, but everything else checks out great, and shipping rates are reasonable. Comparable pricing to Rainbow Mealworms, with an excellent live guarantee. Best part: super fast shipping!

Calcium Worms/Phoenix Worms/etc. — Symton Black Soldier Fly Solutions. Best price I’ve ever found, with 500 jumbo larvae for $13, plus FREE shipping. Heck to the YES.


Layne Laboratories — Layne Labs offers some of the best selection a reptile owner can ask for. Mice and rats? Of course. Rabbits? Naturally. Chicks and quail? Definitely. Guinea pigs? Why not! But that’s not why we recommend them. Layne Labs’ high quality prey are bred and raised in a USDA-licensed facility, with fresh air, clean water, nutritious food and clean, dry bedding. — Perfect Prey is another high quality feeder rodent distributor. Although their selection isn’t as large as Layne Labs, their prices are very reasonable and you don’t have to make huge bulk orders. The prey items are well cared for, euthanized humanely, and packed well. They also sell crickets, mealworms, and waxworms.

ReptiLinks — A nutritionally-complete prey item alternative for reptile keepers who have a hard time giving their snake or lizard food that still looks like an animal. They also offer a selection of frozen whole prey items, including African soft-furred rats.

WholeFoods4Pets — To achieve a balanced diet for your meat-eating reptiles, you need more than just muscle meat; you need bones and organs, too. But organs can be hard to come by, and large bone pieces can be hard to digest. WholeFoods4Pets gets around that problem by offering finely ground whole rabbit and quail for a fair price. Excellent for tegus, monitors, blue tongue skinks, and others!
