Reptiles comprise a large variety of species with a wide range of nutritional requirements:
- Small Skinks, Geckos, Juvenile Bearded Dragons: Insectivorous
- Blue-tongue Lizards, Shinglebacks, Adult Bearded Dragons: Omnivorous
- Short-necked Turtles: Omnivorous (aquatic)
- Long-necked Turtles: Carnivorous (aquatic)
- Snakes & Goannas: Carnivorous
However, in captivity, a lack of dietary variety commonly leads to disorders such as Metabolic Bone Disease. To overcome nutritional deficiencies we recommend to use Wombaroo Reptile Supplement. This versatile product can be added to meat-mixes, fruit & veg mixes, made as soft pellets or fed as a slurry. Other products include Insect Booster for fortifying the nutritional value of feeder insects such as crickets, mealworms & cockroaches.
Insect Booster is used to improve the nutritional value of feeder insects such as crickets, woodies & mealworms.
- Excellent source of calcium, vitamins & minerals.
- Nutrients are incorporated into the body tissue of the feeder insect.
- More efficient than dusting with calcium powder.

For best results, supply Insect Booster to the feeder insects for 7-14 days prior to feeding out to animals. This maximises the uptake of nutrients (eg Calcium) into the body tissue of the insect. However, supplying Insect Booster to insects for as little as 2-3 days before feeding out will still have some nutritional benefit. Moisture should always be available to insects and can be supplied as a piece of wet sponge, fruit or vegetable.
Adult Insects (including crickets & woodies)
Supply Insect Booster as a dry powder in a shallow bowl or plate. Insect Booster should be used as a complete diet for adult insects and does not require other foods to be added.
Juvenile Insects (mealworms & fly pupae)
Make a 50/50 mixture of Insect Booster with bran and supply as the substrate in which the pupae live.
