    Default Emergency Food


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    hey all!! as we all know, coronavirus has much of the world on lockdown. In the LA area, where i am, we are not allowed out of the house until April 19th. My Leo has recently run out of emergency food. I would like to know what i can use in replacement until i can get food shipped in... she is getting thinner (not terribly, but enough for me to worry) and i would like to keep her as healthy as possible before i can get some feeders in. I own no other pets and i have no baby food either, so at home remedies are off the table. Please let me know asap!

    ps. the first pic is feb 22, 2020. the second is Nov 2019, and the last is right now.

    Pet stores qualify as "essential services" and should remain open.

    How about purchasing enough mealworms to breed them?

    Repashy sells a powdered food one mixes with water. It's called Repashy's Grub Pie. It can be ordered from the Reptile Supply Company based in Lodi, California. I recommend feeding other things too, not only Grub Pie.
