Exotic Nutrition's canned insects are a convenient way to incorporate quality protein into your pet's diet. The insects have been 'cooked in the can' to maintain their nutritional value, flavor, and aroma. Cooking process also softens exoskeleton of the insect for easier digestion. Offer multiple types of canned insects for diversity in the diet. Ideal supplemental food source for Sugar Gliders, Hedgehogs, Skunks, Squirrels, Wild Birds, Opossums, Turtles, Tropical fish, Reptiles, and Amphibians.

  • Caterpillars 'cooked in the can' to maintain nutritional value, flavor, & aroma
  • Similar nutritional values to live insects but are easier to digest & store

years, I could not get my skunk to eat any meat. eggs was all the protein she was getting, along with vita-skunk. but these canned caterpillars, grasshoppers, and mealworms are everything. I pop them into her food or give them as a treat in her foraging board and she goes crazy! awesome company with awesome products!

Gliders eat them but they are not really worth the costs. -Francis

My baby skunks just love these and they are by far their favorite food. They actually look forward to them and I use them to get them in and out of their outside pen by bribing them with the caterpillars. I make little skunk sundaes with caterpillars on top! -Kandice H.

by Kandiheller on July 24, 2021

These are the absolute favorite food of my baby skunks. They go for these first of all the food I feed them. If I could buy a million cans of these I would. My babies are growing nice and fat and healthy thanks to EXotic Nutrition and their wonderful selection of foods. I am so grateful for the caterpillars most of all. -Kandice H.

My dragon's 2nd favorite insect to snack on, but when he wants them, he eats them like they're going out of style! I am very glad you provide these as an option. Thank you!🧡 -DeAnna M.

Our gliders love just about all bugs. Wished though that your prices were a little more reasonable. -Arthur F.

I have southern flying squirrels and they absolutely LOVE these canned caterpillars! I strongly recommend these to anyone with insect eaters. Hedgehogs, marmosets, Degus.. These are way better then dried insects because they retain the moisture and nutrient content. If you don't like the thought of feeding live insects please do your animals a favor and give these a try. Easy to feed and store in your fridge. -William C

We have four sugar gliders and they all love meaty foods such as insects, worms or pupae. -Art

My gliders would not have anything to do with these. It might just be their preference to the mealworms. -Angela T.

My bird hated these so I put them outside for the wild birds. They hated them as well. -Laura T.
