My Sugar Gliders absolutely LOVE this meal! Gliders are a bit more to care for, they require fresh fruits and vegetables. But they also need a food source in the cage 24/7! Premium Insectivore is that food!! It's quality made in America, with quality ingredients. My companions are happy, healthy, and active!! - Donald W

My hedgehog loves these pellets! He is a picky eater and refuses to eat some items but he devours this whenever I put it in his cage. -Julia C.

I keep the Premium Insectivore Diet in my sugar gliders cage 24/7! They get a lot of nutrition, as well as having something to eat throughout the day. I feed fresh meals in the evening, but they always have access to their Insectivore!! My companions have been enjoying this for about 5 years now! -Donald W.

Figured this was a good alternative to putting creepy crawlers in my Marmoset cage for feeding however my monkey didn't give interest towards it. She doesn't like to eat live meal worms either, it's like the worms moving in her hand freaks her out too. So I may have to try dried insects next. Picky Marmoset indeed. -Kristi L.

My gliders turn their noses up at almost every other dry food but this one is a big winner they really eat this and like it !! Wish I could buy a larger size! -Deidre S.

I've been buying the premium insectivore diet for my skunk Tink, for 3 years now and she loves it! I like that I can order a balanced diet with all the nutrition factors built in and that they have many different options from dried/live bugs and worms to vitamins, toys and caging accessories (she's a free roam skunk so she doesn't have a cage) She's a fat, loving, happy skunk and I'll continue ordering from exotic nutrition! They take the guess work out of figuring out a balanced skunk diet! I love you guys @ Exotic Nutrition thank you so much for making it so easy to feed my baby girl! ♥️ -Carrie P.

Great company with a huge variety of high quality exotic pet items you won't find anywhere else. We choose the Insectivore Diet with the Vital Glo vitamin spray. Just a few pieces softened a little with some water and a vitamin sprtiz and our small, rehabilitated Virginia Opossum is looking fat and happy! Well balanced nutrition is so important to small exotic pets and this company offers many options that take the labor and guess work out of getting it right. I'm looking forward to trying their other products! -Elizabeth S.

I've only purchased the opossum complete food, order comes quick & I'm very pleased! Now, I'm just hoping the mama with her pouch full of joey's come back? I've been feeding her for at least 6 months, had previously purchased on Amazon, but it's cheaper directly ftom Exotic Nutrition 😊 -Bonnie S.

Was not sure my pocket opossum would like the food but wanted to give him something different. He immediately gobbled it up. Just a little guy but he ate a lot and he loves it. To me and I'm sure Chaos (his name) it was worth the try. -Scott M.

The "juice" from frozen Joey cubes acts like veggie gravy. I do wish I could buy volume at a decent price. The husband is grumbling on the price. -Sue E.

The girls love this kibble. I would say they like this the best dry kibbles of all the exotic brands out their including Mazuri, etc, especially of the kibble (that doesn’t contain dried fruit which of course they love) and seems to be quite ‘complete’ nutritionally. I do alternate various dry along with their fresh foods: Vegi’s, fruit, boiled eggs(with shell), and other options including an occasional thawed pinky mouse. These two unreleasable girls are both 4 years old and weigh around 12 lbs each. Do wish exoticnutrition offered this in a larger bag. I go through this bag in about two weeks( alternating with Opossum Complete, and Mazuri Omnivore kibble(bear food). -Kathryn R.

Blossom, my wildlife educational Opossum, eats this everyday. She is healthy, her fur is shiny, she’s perfect weight and she LOVES the taste! I am more than pleased with this product. Also, I feed this to our rehab skunks and they love it as well. I have no cons to say about this product, but I would like it in a 5 or 10 pound bag option. Thanks for making such a great product! -Letonya V.

I bought the Insectivore Diet at the same time that I bought the Opossum Complete. My little girl Blossom is in love with it! I fix it the same way I fix them both the same way. I powder them, add calcium & vitamins, and hot water. She slurps it up like there is no tomorrow! -Rose Marie

My sugar glider is older and a very picky eater. She absolutely loves this food. Thank you exotic nutrition! There is no sugar glider food sources available in my area and you are always quick to deliver.

My little girl opossum loves the pellets, not quite as much as cat food, fruits and veggies, but it's definitely at the core of her nutrition.

My three little girls (sugar gliders) have steadfastly refused any and all pellet foods I tried to introduce. With a recent order of Berries and Bugs to try out (they will only eat recognizable bugs in that one!), I got a small, free, bonus trial pack of Premium Insectivore Pellets. In light of their refusal of all pellet food I have tried, I tossed it aside carelessly. The next morning, there was a hole in the bag with a considerable amount missing! They left a bit of a mess so I put it in a small open box with other things. Last night, I lay in bed watching one work for half an hour to get the pellet package out, ultimately successfully. I then got up and poured out most of them on their food tray. This morning they were gone! I don't know if it is only one glider gobbling it up or all three but someone clearly loves these pellets! I am ordering more!!

The whole ingredients sounds exactly what my spiky friends needs, I bought it for this same reason, so he has all the proteins & vitamins needed. My Nunsongee doesn't seem to agree. My personal experience with my baby, not all hedgehogs have the same taste. I bought it because I saw many hedgehogs eating this & it's highly recommended.

by ciniva on June 25, 2017

We used Premium Skunk Diet for the past few years and tried this new food with our last purchase. Middy (our skunk) really liked the Premium Insectivore more than the Premium Skunk diet. I think we may change on our next order.
