    Your favorite online rodent supplier?

    So, after going through my super secret micesicle stash in my freezer, I realized that I'm running low on just about everything, so I'm gonna need to order frozen rodents sooner than expected. I have been using rodent pro the last couple of years and have been very pleased with the awesome deals and nice clean rodents, but my last order was a bit underwhelming. I found that with this order, the adult mice were MUCH smaller than usual, and the rat pups were also smaller than the listed range. My baby balls aren't so baby anymore, and these rat pups are getting way too small... Same size as a small adult mouse. My kings are getting cranky and ravenous much sooner after feeding, and I need to feed them far more often to keep them satisfied.

    So, my question to you is... what is a good online company to get rodents from? I want one that is consistent with rodent weights, has healthy rodents, and is reasonably priced. I've done some looking around and there are a handful of places to order from, but I seem to hear mixed reviews on pretty much all of them.

    I've only used Perfect Prey, so can only share my experience with them.

    I am 100000% happy with customer service, pricing, shipping, packaging and quality of product.

    - They are easy to work with and helpful if you have any questions.
    - The prices are right in line with others, and cheaper than most.
    - so far shipping has been spot on
    - packaging is outstanding!!!
    - quality has been stellar. Every mouse and rat is carefully packaged, none frozen together, no busted tails, limbs, etc...(well, 1 decapitated pinky in my first order, but 1 out of several hundred so far is pretty darn good), nothing stinky or bloody, no bedding. Just clean, quality prey.

    The ONLY knock I have is that with my LG adult mice for my King I received many towards the low end of the weight range and VERY few towards the higher end.
    Same with my small rats, but not quite as drastic a ratio.

    I did call and speak to a very helpful and friendly gentleman who assured me that he took notes and has them on file. He asked me to call next time to place the order and just remind him and request larger pieces. He assured me I would get what I asked for.

    I'm placing an order next week or the week after and will be sticking with Perfect Prey.

    P.S. they even send a free pen with each order!! Hahaha

    I've used big cheese, perfect prey, rodent pro, mice direct and a couple others. Hands down I would only recommend big cheese or perfect prey. I simply use big cheese because the prices are better than perfect prey and both have equal quality.

    Now, if you need mediums then I wouldn't use big cheese as they always almost never seem to have mediums.

    Big cheese or perfect prey. Both are excellent and perfect prey has smaller quantity if you have a growing snake. Big cheese has cheaper shipping.

    Big Cheese and Perfect Prey.

    Big Cheese often is out of medium rats, but otherwise they are excellent. I recently did my first order from Perfect Prey and I was not disappointed at all.

    You cannot go wrong with either one.

    Hmmm, well that certainly narrows it down a bit! Lol

    It sounds like big cheese would be my first choice, due to cheaper shipping, but being out of medium rats is definitely an issue. Right now I'm trying to work out a way to get my hands on rats that are a good size for both my male bps who are probably nearing 800g, and my water python, who I can't get a weight on due to her constant need to move and sprawl all over the place. Getting adult mice with a bit of size on them would be nice for my kings... no more scrawny young things. If I can get some of both of those I'll be happy.
