Only £1.99 delivery - a special delivery rate for all live food
Exclusive to The Pet Express! We can now offer live reptile food in ultra convenient letterbox sized boxes, saving you time and hassle as there’s no more waiting in for your live food deliveries.
* Please note these are designed to fit standard letterboxes, and might not fit through some. As a precaution please ensure there is a neighbour to sign on your behalf just due to the fragile nature of the goods.
We have two available combinations:
House Brown Crickets (Acheta Domesticus)
House Brown Crickets (Acheta Domesticus) are easily digestible due to their soft-bodies. A hardy and cold-tolerant species of cricket means they withstand the winter well.
Banded Brown Crickets (Gryllodes Sigillatus)
Smaller than other species of cricket, Banded Brown Crickets are excellent climbers and make a great meal or treat for most reptiles or amphibians.
Black Crickets (Gryllus Bimaculatus)
A hardy, cold-tolerant cricket, Black Crickets can grow to over 30mm in length. Extremely popular in the winter months as Black Crickets can tolerate lower temperatures than the two brown species of crickets currently sold.
Locusts (Schistocerca Gregaria)
Locusts are an extremely popular source of live food, particularly amongst Bearded Dragon Keepers.
Silent Crickets (Gryllus Assimilis)
Silent Crickets are the larger species of brown cricket, and whilst not completely silent, they are the quietest species of cricket commercially available.
Cockroaches (Blaptica Dubia)
Dubia Roaches are approximately 25-30mm long and are available in a pack of 6. A medium sized species of cockroach, Dubia Roaches are easy to handle, very nutritious and easy to digest. A great alternative to crickets as they do not jump and they are silent!
Morioworms (Zophobos Morio)
Morioworms are approximately 40-50mm long. Most larger lizards love eating Morioworms either as a part of their staple diet or even as a treat.
Mini Mealworms (Tenebrio Molitor)
High in protein and fat, Mini Mealworms are ideal for smaller sized reptiles. Mealworms are also popular in bird feeders for wild birds.
Mealworms (Tenebrio Molitor)
Mealworms are approximately 18-26mm long. Mealworms are often selected for their high levels of important vitamins, fats and proteins and form part of many reptiles' balanced diet. Easy to care for and extremely easy for your reptile to eat - just place them in a suitable feeding dish!
Calci Worms (Hermetia Illucens)
Calci Worms are the larvae of the Black Soldier Fly. Highly nutritious, low in fat and very high in calcium, Calci Worms are ready to serve straight from their pot!
Waxworms (Galleria Mellonella)
Waxmoth Larvae are the soft-bodied larvae stage of the Lesser Waxmoth, commonly know as Waxworms. Packed with vitamins and minerals, Waxworms make an excellent treat for healthy reptiles and for reptiles that need conditioning. They are also a popular choice amongst bird and fish keepers.
Pachnoda Grub (Pachnoda Marginata)
Pachnoda Grubs are the soft-bodied larvae stage of the fruit beetle Pachnoda marginata, also known as Sun Beetles. With soft bodies, like Waxworms, Pachnoda Grubs make ideal treats for feeding to carnivorous and insectivorous reptiles and insect eating birds.
Earthworms are enjoyed by those reptiles and amphibians that prefer soft and moist food. Favoured by invertebrates, Dendrobaena worms are also well suited to larger reptiles and amphibians, as they can be up to 50-75mm long. Extremely lively and easy to look after, Earthworms are rich in protein and calcium and should form part of a balanced diet.
