Med's Can O' Crickets is not only nutritious for your sugar glider, but
delicious as well. A lot of people are really squeamish about
feeding live bugs to their gliders, but keep in mind that bugs are a
natural part of the sugar glider diet and by feeding them bugs we can
more closely simulate nature's choice for sugar glider nutrition.
And for those of you who aren't so squeamish, Zoo Med's Can O'
Crickets is great to have on hand for "emergency" supply when you've
used up your last live bug and your little fur butts are begging for
These farm raised crickets are retorted (cooked in the can). This unique cooking process
locks in the flavor, freshness and natural juices. The exoskeleton is softened for easier
digestibility. You will be amazed how readily your animals will take to this food.
Canning has many advantages including less preservatives and binders
meaning that your sugar gliders receive more usable food materials in
every meal. And the extended shelf life (un-opened) of this
product is two years! Zoo Med Labs, manufacturer of this fine
product, tests all food products through a strict six month process.
SunCoast Sugar Gliders does not recommend this product or any product as a single source
of nutrition for your pet. Zoo Med's Can O' Crickets is a good source of protein to fill
sugar glider needs of 40-50% protein in their diet. In addition to protein sources, we
recommend servings of fresh fruits and veggies along with a high quality staple food like
Wholesome Balance. Can O'
Crickets is also a great supplement to the Leadbeater's Diet or Taronga Zoo diet.
No matter what type of feeding program your sugar glider is on, Zoo Med's
Can O' Crickets will be a welcome addition!
