Reptanicals captive bred Hydei fruit flies are a genetic mutation of their flighted cousins, that have been bred for the pet industry. They are about the size of week old crickets and are perfect for mourning geckos, mantids, dart frogs, scorpions, spiders, and hatchling reptiles like chameleons.
Our fruit flies are raised on Reptanicals Fruit Fly Feast, a premium diet that contains protein, vitamins and minerals - so your flies are raised as a gut-loaded FEAST for your critters to dine on - no dusting necessary! Reptanicals Fruit Fly Feast is also packed with beta-carotene which has been proven to improve color in reptiles!
Each FRESH, self-sustaining 16oz or 32oz culture includes: 25-50+ adult flies, food, water, and excelsior. Flies will already be laying eggs, and should begin reproducing in about 10 days. Cultures can produce up to 500-1000+ flies.
