Application — Food for Snakes, Birds, Dogs, and Cats
Frozen rats weighing 350 g are an excellent choice for breeders of various animal species. According to our data, they are especially often bought and recommended as food for snakes, including boas and pythons, as well as part of the whole prey diet for dogs and cats (what is whole prey?).
Introducing frozen rats into the diet as food for dogs and cats can bring significant health benefits, affecting their overall condition and well-being. As cat food, frozen rodents can be an addition to the diet or the basis of nutrition. Similar to snakes, for dogs and cats, a frozen rat constitutes a natural form of food, inspired by nature.
Frozen Rats for Snakes — Thawing Instructions
How to thaw rats for snakes? This question plagues novice terrarium enthusiasts as much as the issue of what domestic snakes eat. Buying frozen food for snakes in the whole prey store is one thing, another matter is serving it to a python or boa, e.g., an emperor. Thawing food for snake consumption should be done based on a few guidelines that ensure the food will be safe and attractive for the snake.
In the first step, we remove the rats for snakes from the freezer and leave them at room temperature, allowing for gradual thawing. Frozen rodents used as cat food are ready to be served after this time, however, according to our data, snakes prefer to eat foods warmed to the temperature of a living prey's body. To adjust the temperature of the rat to that of a living feeder rat, making it an attractive meal for the snake, we recommend using one of two methods:
Thawing rats in a water bath: Place the rat in a tightly sealed plastic bag and immerse it in a bowl of warm, but not hot, water. It is important that the water is not too hot to avoid "cooking" the rat. Monitor the water temperature, maintaining it at about 37°C, which corresponds to the body temperature of a live rodent that serves as food for snakes.
Thawing rats under a lamp: an alternative method involves using a special heating lamp for reptiles to gently warm the thawed rat to the desired temperature. The rat should be placed under the lamp at a safe distance to avoid overheating and cooking the food.
Both methods require monitoring the rat's temperature. The ultimate goal is to achieve a temperature of about 37°C, which most closely resembles the warmth of a live rodent's body. This is especially important for snakes, which prefer warm meals, and the appropriate temperature can stimulate their natural hunting instincts.
At Raw PetFood, we prioritize the highest quality of the rats and mice sold in our whole prey store. That's why frozen rats from our breeding farms are the obvious answer to the question of where to buy a rat and the best offer for breeders and owners of reptiles, predatory birds, dogs, and cats. In terms of our feeder rodents, their price also competitively stands out. Buying rats from Raw PetFood guarantees first-rate quality for each individual product. Thanks to our experience in feeder breeding, professional approach to rodent sales, and modern delivery in dry ice, we offer pet food that always arrives fresh, safe, and hygienically packed to our customers.
