Zoo Med's Can O' Grasshoppers

Oh my goodness Lisa!! 

I just made my first attempt at feeding Rusty and Audrey insects.  Wow!!  I don't know what else to say but WOW!!  They took to them IMMEDIATELY!!

They always come out around 3 pm for a "midnight snack", and today I saw it as a good opportunity to give the insects a go.  I only put a few of the...

Exo Terra Grasshoppers - 1.2 oz
Extra Large or Medium

$4.85
2 for $8.46

Product ID # 5008

PLEASE NOTE: These Exo-Terra Grasshoppers are now available in two sizes: Extra Large and Medium

Don't worry about Aflatoxins with these bugs, read more here.

Exo Terra Grasshoppers 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, Exo Terra Grasshoppers 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 more.

These farm-raised grasshoppers 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!  Exo Terra Labs, manufacturer of this fine product, tests all food products through a strict six month process.

We offer two sizes of grasshoppers, Extra Large and Medium - see picture at left.  Medium hoppers are a bit smaller than the crickets with 50 - 60 in a can; Extra Large are giants similar to the ZooMed hoppers sold  previously with 8 - 10 in a can.  You get 1.2 ounces of grasshoppers with either Medium or Extra large.

Younger gliders may find the Medium size easier to deal with, though there's noting quite as funny as seeing a glider of any age totin' around and tearing into a giant hopper!

SunCoast Sugar Gliders does not recommend this product or any product as a single source of nutrition for your pet.  Exo Terra Grasshoppers 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.  These Grasshoppers 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, Exo Terra  Grasshoppers will be a welcome addition!

Feeding Instructions: Offer your sugar glider 1 Extra Large or 4 - 6 Medium grasshoppers per serving.  This product must be refrigerated after opening.  A plastic lid is included to make storage easy!  For best results, use within 1 week or freeze unused portion.  Frozen bugs should be fed as soon as they thaw.  This product may be fed to gliders of any age.  Baby sugar gliders may not eat them right away, but one day, they will get the taste for them, and boy oh boy, you better have a good supply on hand!  Don't believe me?  Read this.
