Small Drosophila (fruit flies) - as food for young reptiles and amphibians
Drosophila (fruit flies) may not immediately be thought of as food animals, as these insects have become household pests. Especially in the warm months Drosophila (fruit flies) multiply inflationary and some cuisines have them firmly under control. Drosophila (fruit flies) are nevertheless excellent food insects and the variant of Drosophila (fruit flies) offered by us is particularly easy to handle. Because: These feed-animals were "bred away" the flying ability so to speak. So if you use Drosophila (fruit flies) as food insects, you don't have to be afraid that the little animals will soon buzz around your ears! Good, because Drosophila (fruit flies) are very useful as food insects. Freshly hatched reptiles, frogs, dendrobates (arrow poison frogs) or show insects (praying mantis, walking leaf etc.) belong to the enthusiastic eaters of the Drosophila (fruit flies). Drosophila (fruit flies) are poor in fats as feed animals and have a lot of valuable protein. The nutritional values of Drosophila (fruit flies) are perfect, especially in the breeding of young animals.
The food animals offered here are Drosophila (fruit flies) of the genus Drosophila funebris - the big vinegar fly. The name is a little misleading about the true proportions - the food insects reach a maximum body length of about 3 mm. Of course, we cannot count or weigh Drosophila (fruit flies) for them. Instead, we provide you with these healthy and vital feed insects as a so-called breeding approach. Means: You get your Drosophila (fruit flies) in a suitable box, which contains everything the food insects need for healthy development. Place the box of Drosophila (fruit flies) in a warm place - e.g. on the terrarium. At temperatures between 22 and 26° C the Drosophila (fruit flies) feel particularly well, develop quickly and remain active. You can then simply remove as many feed animals as you need.
You can get a breeding batch for Drosophila (fruit flies) from us in two different sizes (0.5 litres or 1 litre), depending on your personal needs.
