An Exotic Diet for an Exotic Pet

When it comes to your pet's dinner, the menu consists of worms, crickets and snails galore. Zoo Med offers a wide range of nutritious and tasty food to feed every exotic pet a special diet that's made just for them.

TURTLES AND TORTOISES: From treats to whole diets, Zoo Med provides a nutritional boost to fit any turtle or tortoise want or need.

FISH: Your tropical fish enjoys a treat every now and then, and Zoo Med offers a tasty variety to choose from.

FROGS: Including high-protein, sinking pellets that mimic what frogs would eat in the wild, this frog food is just what you need to keep your amphibian jumping.

Give Him an Extra Boost

Because any pet could benefit from a little extra care, Zoo Med makes supplements that will help fortify your exotic pet's health and environment. Feeding him a supplement, in addition to his healthful meal, can be the extra step that it takes to keep your frog, lizard, turtle or fish happy and healthy.

Rest, Relax and Thrive

Every exotic pet needs a place to call their own, and Zoo Med makes it easy to keep them comfortable and thriving.


Mimic the true feel of a tropical or desert climate with lighting that gives reptiles the warmth of a natural habitat. The selection includes long-lasting bulbs that require minimal maintenance and infrared lights that won't disturb sleep patterns.
