Reptile Feeding Tools
Reptile Tools Buying Guide
Reptiles can be tricky to feed. Many will eat only live food and this can cause problems. Live foods such as crickets can be very active and difficult to keep in once place. They can also be excellent escape artists, and will often find ways to keep clear of hungry reptilian mouths. A simple bowl will not be able to contain crickets and other similar prey animals. Instead, they will roam the habitat and are unlikely to be at all obedient.
Reptile feeding tools encourage the crickets to stay in one place, while also being free to wander to where they will become dinner. They are shaped as naturally occurring objects which help to create an aesthetically pleasing habitat for your reptiles. The tools also help to ensure the crickets are covered in powdered supplements. Otherwise, the supplements might just fall away and cause a potential hygiene hazard in your reptile’s home.
Another solution is to fool your reptiles into thinking that dead food is live. As fascinating as they can be, reptiles tend not to be particularly smart. They tend to respond to motion when hunting which is one reason why they only accept live food. Some reptile feeding tools help to simulate motion to trick the reptile into thinking the food is still alive. This solution helps to overcome the problems encountered when trying to feed your reptiles live food.
