How To Care For Reptile Live Food When It Arrives
During the cold weather we make every effort to ensure that your livefood arrives as warm and active as possible.
We use a variety of packaging methods depending on the severity of the predicted weather.
This may include:
-Heat packs or
-Wrapping of livefood tubs
However, despite our best efforts, your livefood still may arrive looking lifeless. Many of our common livefood species enter a dormant state when exposed to colder weather. As they are cold-blooded, they cannot regulate their body temperature effectively, so will slow down their body process waiting for warmer conditions - Mealworms, Morioworms, Calci worms and Crickets all do this, for example.

Top Tips
In order to bring the livefood around, it is important you follow a few simple steps:
1. Unpack the outer boxes and lay out all packs/ tubs so that fresh air can circulate around them
2. Leave the packs/tubs at room temperature (18?C-25?C)
3. Do not offer external heat as warming up livefood quickly will kill them. This is the most common cause of livefood deaths.
4. For bulk bags of livefood, gently agitate the bag to spread-out the insects within. Leave at room temperature and prop up in a horizontal position.
5. Livefood may take several hours to completely recover but 99% of live food will recover fully providing they are treated correctly upon arrival

My Favourite Size

I keep these in for my Common Toad (Bufo bufo).

I treat the crickets like pets too. Food, water crystals, warmth and shelter. Newlands gets them to me, 99.9% alive. I keep them that way, with good care. By the time they meet the toad, they're bigger and full of natural goodness.

He'll about get through two tubs, before they get big enough to start chirping. Win / win ;)
