    Reptilinks!!!???

    Ok guys, give me your thoughts on Reptilinks for snakes!! I used to give them to my beardie and she was so so about them. My local reptile shop has been selling them for awhile and she said a lot of people have fed them to their snakes.

    My biggest concern is that whole prey comes with everything, organs, bone, blood, muscle etc. Reptilinks claims to have all that too. It comes in different set ups with different meats, veggies etc. Been thinking of trying it for Caesar and the big boas as they are garbage cans and eat anything lol. But i'm looking for people who have used it for awhile and what they have observed. More was thinking as a 'treat' or change of pace from rats, rabbits and quails since they have venison ones and stuff.

    Well, i guess the biggest links are only 100g. The owner showed his his peruvian BCC and said he hopes to be producing big links soon. So maybe I'll test it out on the smaller boas as they dont get a variation of food and only eat weaned rats. This would actually be a good way to get them variety as i guess they just added a guinea fowl link along with their other stuff like rabbit, quail and stuff.

    I think it makes a lot of sense. European bred lab rodents are essentially buttery junkfood, which is why almost all reptiles love them. The science is still incomplete, but no one is going to be surprised to find out a 100% rodent diet is inferior to a varied one. Think about how we raise hatchlings - on pinks which are nothing but globs of fat and water.

    I've purchased and fed the rabbit links to my snakes. In general the snakes that are typically garbage disposals - BI's, BRB's, Savu's, Retics, Burms, etc. - will eat them. Ball pythons, not so much.

    My only complaint with them is that some of my harder-hitting/wrapping snakes ripped them in half; BRB's were actually the worst about this. Unless you have a lizard or a lazy snake that will just start chowing down on a f/t feeder without "killing" it first, I wouldn't recommend getting links larger than 25 grams.

    All I can add is I know they’ve been around for along time, maybe 20 years. Never heard anything negative.

    Hmm, think I'll give a shot to my little guys like Gina, Rango and Louie. Actually been thinking of maybe trying a little 6 gram one for Pat too. Caesar, Rosey and Vicky hit their rats like a freight train, so might not be the best idea. I probably will try one when the guy starts making 200-300 gram ones. Right now, he just has 100 grams as the largest.

    So your boas have taken the little rabbit ones pretty eagerly?

    And yeah, i didnt even think about trying one for Dottie. And probably not for Luna either as she is scared of a FT rat lol. But who knows, maybe i'll hang one for her and if she doesnt eat, i can give it one of the small boas. If she does eat it, i can just go back to the reptile shop and buy one to replace for the boas.

    Perfect for corns since most will eat anything.

    i always say if my Corn ever refuses a meal, it's an emergency trip to the vet!!!

    but about Reptilinks: omg really? that's awesome! i'm actually on the hunt for proper sized feeders for my growing (severely underfed) Corn; do you keep Corns? do you have experience feeding these to Corns?

    Hahaha, my scrub is just like that. He tried to snatch a hot dog from me once, so I'm sure he wouldn't think twice about a guinea fowl link! Even though it sounds like a weird idea in my head, everyone I know that's ever tried reptilinks says they're great. If your snake will eat them, it's probably a great way to vary their diet.
