This is also very popular with aquatic salamanders and newts.

The Exo Terra turtle pebbles are very rounded and collected from fast-moving rivers. There are variations in size and color, making it an attractive and popular substrate for aquatic aquariums. Several sizes are available, with different sized pebbles. We use both of these products exclusively as they are sanitized and appreciated by our animals.

Sepia bones also float, making them ideal for aquatic turtles. The bone can be broken into pieces or ground down into powder.

Each pack comes with two full-size sepia bones which will last for months. This product is also known as cuttlefish bone (sepia is a genus of cuttlefish). Supplementing aquatic turtles with calcium can be difficult with powders, but these bones make it convenient. Each package includes two bones.

Multivitamin Supplement

Turtle vitamins for sale
Captive reptile diets often lack a litany of vitamins and minerals found in nature, and thus supplementation is usually necessary. The Exo Terra multi vitamin supplement is an absolutely crucial element for your turtle's development and well being. The ingredient list is a precise mixture of vitamins, trace elements, and amino acids that aid in the growth, production, digestion, and reproduction of your captive turtles.

We use this vitamin supplement once per week with our captive turtles, and we believe it provides a noticeable increase in energy, vibrance, and coloration. Available in 30, 70, and 360 gram sizes.

Canned Insects  

Canned turtle food for sale

Aquatic turtles love consuming insects dropped onto the water's surface, so it's natural we offer these canned insects for sale. These captive bred insects are cooked in the can to preserve flavor, nutritional value, and scent. The mild cooking process protects nutritional value and also softens the exoskeleton of the insects, making digestion easier. These insects have the same nutritional value as live feeders but are easier to absorb.

Our turtle colonies relish these canned insects, fish, and shrimp. Simply drop them onto the water's surface and watch your turtles attack!

  • Why buy reptiles?

    We offer exotic reptiles for sale online at absolute rock-bottom prices, which means we make these fascinating animals available to you affordably as pets, or even to start your own reptile breeding project.

Whether you buy a snake, lizard, turtle, tortoise, or alligator, we are driven to provide the highest quality live reptiles for sale.

  • Why buy amphibians?

    Amphibians are generally slower-moving, and have uniquely moist skin which means they are never far from a source of water. Their life cycle is nothing short of incredible: they hatch in water, spend weeks or months in metamorphosis, then become either terrestrial or remain primarily water bound. Some salamanders even breathe through their skin! Our live amphibians for sale online include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Some are huge, some are small, and virtually all are amazing to observe in captivity. When you buy amphibians from us, you can rest assured they are fully guaranteed to arrive alive and in great condition. Why not start an amphibian breeding project today?

  • Why buy feeder insects?

    Reptile and amphibian food should be varied, which is why we offer an array of feeder insects for sale. It's always far more cost effective to buy feeder insects in bulk, which often saves up to 70% off pet store prices. Plus, the feeders are delivered right to your doorstep. We offer live crickets for sale, as well as mealworms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and now even lizards, all at the lowest possible prices. Our reptile and amphibian feeder insects and lizards include a guarantee of live arrival.
