- The canned insects of EXOTIC NUTRITION are a convenient and easy way to incorporate quality protein into the diet of your sugar gliders.
The insects are prepared in the same can in which they are sold, thus preserving all their nutritional value, flavor and aroma. The process of preparing insects also helps to soften the exoskeleton of insects, for better digestion of insects, in addition to releasing collagen proteins for better absorption in the digestion of your suggies. Collagen is a vital nutrient in the digestion of your sugar gliders for the formation and maintenance of the structures of bones, cartilage, skin and nails.
Canned insects maintain a nutritional value very similar to live insects, but much more convenient to digest and maintain, in addition to offering us the possibility of offering a wider range throughout the year, regardless of the time of year. In addition, insects are canned at their optimum time of development and health, ensuring that only the best and healthiest of the colony are ingested by your sugar bear.
Although EXOTIC NUTRITION ensures that canned insects are a substitute for live insects, from Sugar Glider Europe we recommend that they be used in a complementary way, since the hunting of live insects fulfills not only nutritional functions but also stimulation and enrichment of your sugar gliders.
For greater variety in the diet, offer different types of insects interspersed or mixed. For improved ratios, GLIDER BOOSTER and GLIDER CAL can be sprinkled on them before serving, in moderation.
