Zoo Animals

With many zoos and wildlife parks focused on captive breeding programmes, nutritional aspects on a wide range of mammals are being investigated. With assistance from zoos, we have produced products which provide essential nutrients to improve diets for carnivores and primates. We can also manufacture milk replacers from an exhaustive list of mammal species kept in zoos.

    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.
