Exo Terra Canned Foods are an ideal way to feed insects to reptiles. These insects have been cooked in the can to maintain nutritional value, flavor and aroma. This technique also softens the exoskeleton of insects for better digestion and breaks the bonds between collagen proteins to make them absorbable by reptiles.
Collagen is an important fiber for building bones, cartilage, skin and claws. Canned insects have the same nutritional properties as live insects, but they are easier to digest. It is not necessary to give additional live insects in addition to these canned foods.
