Description

Zoo Med Can O' Crickets Reptile & Bird Food is the latest in reptile nutrition and convenience. Feeder insects are cooked in the can to lock in flavor and freshness. This process also softens the exoskeleton for easier digestion. These adult-size crickets are ideal for most lizards, turtles, fish, birds and small animals. Every can is filled with 60 farm-raised crickets. It’s a much more convenient way to feed your pet than having to store live insects until mealtime.

Key Benefits
  • Perfect for reptiles, birds, and amphibians, it makes feeding easy!
  • Locked in flavor and freshness with natural juices preserved in the can
  • Softened exoskeleton makes for easier digestion
  • A great alternative to buying live food and having to store it, you can always be prepared by having a can on hand
  • Complete nutrition and convenience in a resealable can

  • Painted Turtles Liked!

    By on

    Great little can of MEGA size, juicy, very plump and freshly preserved crickets! I like to switch up our two captive-born, painted turtles diets so they don't get bored, and don't care for potential escapee crickets on the loose if live are fed. So this was a good option. Our turtles are five and six years old, both a male and female, with shells about the diameter of a 5 inch (male) and 8 inch salad plate (female), and they were tearing these rather XL crickets apart and leaving big chunks of arms, legs, and heads left sinking to the bottom of the tank and cricket guts and debris flying all throughout their water. Mealtime was a bit messier than usual or expected. Our turtles also aren't very Great little can of MEGA size, juicy, very plump and freshly preserved crickets!

Mealtime was a bit messier than usual or expected. Our turtles also aren't very smart and unless you either direct food straight into their dumb little mouths or tap to where they'll find it, they never do, so unfortunately there was a significant portion left uneaten and sifted out. I think I'll only get these for a treat once in a while. One thing to note, they did go "rancid" in their juices sealed in the can after some handful of days, so they needed to be fed and eaten pretty quickly, not something to sit for a week or two like freeze-dried foods. … more

  • The BEST canned food

    By on

    My bearded dragon attacks these as soon as I put them in his tank. He was raised on live dubias but now is bored with them so I have switched to these with the occasional horned worm for a treat. I dust these with calcium, place them on the floor of his tank and he dives for them. It only takes 5-10 to fill him since they are so large. I can't believe I wasted time with Flukers which I now see are total garbage. Love these for my guy.

    My hedgehog loves his can o' crickets! Unfortunately I can't feed live crickets since he is in an open cage, but these serve as a great alternative.

  • Lizard LOVED them...but went moldy :(

    By on

    My full-grown beardie loved them, but the first can I bought I kept in the fridge and they molded after a week. I figured they weren't supposed to be in there, so the next can I set out and they molded after 2 days. Would love to get them again because Mushu loved them so much, but how many can he eat in just a few days??? BUMMED.

  • Absolutely amazing

    By on

    My bearded dragon Violet absolutely loves these! Once she sees me walk towards her terrarium with these she absolutely loses it and eats them up! But remember, all reptiles have their own personalities which includes their likes and dislikes.

  • Zoo Med Can o' Crickets

    By on

    I really thought our bearded dragons would love these, but after opening the first can, the smell was so bad, worse than dead crickets, seemed liked the can was very old worse smell ever. The bearded dragons wouldn't touch it at all, we thought after a day they would but NOPE. This was a waste of money.

  • THESE ARE FOR LARGE ANIMALS

    By on

    The container doesn't tell you, but these are large crickets. Meant for bearded dragons and iguanas. They have a strong smell, but they are great. I cut them up and gave them to my anoles and they ate them okay.

  • The best canned crickets!

    By on

    I buy these for my Leopard Gecko. Zoo Med are the only brand he will eat. The large crickets are completely whole and slightly juicy. Zoo Med is much better than Flukers, where all the crickets are soggy and squashed into pieces.
