It’s very important to offer freshly frozen small/medium mice that haven’t been stored for too long. The mice we supply have been frozen immediately after humane euthanasia. So when defrosted give the healthiest possible diet for your reptile pet. Defrosted frozen rodents and chicks can be offered to snakes, some lizards, and as an occasional treat to some larger amphibians.
We understand the importance of frozen foods arriving frozen so we use special cardboard boxes (better for the environment than polystyrene), insulating paper wrapping, dry ice* (colder than -78.5ºc!*) and a speedy reliable courier to ensure that your frozen snake foods arrive frozen and in great condition.
By the time you receive the goods the dry ice will have dissipated to the point where there will just be packaging in the box. To be disposed of as per the instruction on the packet. You should be aware that dry ice has been used but as we send in non-airtight boxes your exposure risk to the dry ice is incredibly minimal.
