    Default Vita bugs feeders??


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello, all!

    So today I was getting my Leo's their usual feeders, and the store associate asked if I would prefer standard feeders or "Vita bug" feeders. These vita bug feeders (from what the mighty Google has told me) are supposed to "provide nutritional diversity and support a complete diet, promote enhanced immune response, coloration and improved overall animal health, and provide increased levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin E with improved Omega-3 fatty acids resulting in improved Omega-6:Omega-3 ratio". I was honestly expecting a claim like "These feeders will make you gecko become a T. Rex!" next.

    Does anyone have any experience with vita bugs (good and/or bad)?

    And I got the standard feeders, just because I didn't have any clue about these vita bugs. (The devil you know is better than the devil you don't, after all.)

    I picked up some of those Vita-Bugs at Petco one day, meal and wax worms, and I didn't really notice a difference. I just get regular ones, I think the vita-bugs are pre-gut loaded before they send them out.

    Well, that would explain a lot! And also makes the most sense; I doubt they did any genetic engineering (breeding or otherwise) to accomplish such feats. It would also explain the variety; they've got everything from crickets to mealworms.

    Yeah I think that's the only difference, I'm not really sure. I don't buy my mealworms from big box stores anymore, I can get more for the price of 35 at the store I get my roaches at.

    I would also hope they're not genetically modified. I've become a conspiracy nut about GMO stuff....

    How much do your mealworms run you? I get a hundred count of large mealworms for like 4 bucks and some change?

    I think I paid a little over $3 for my 100 count. I got that same mealworm dish you have, going out of town for thanksgiving so I wanted to make sure he had food before I left and a dish they couldn't escape.
