I heard in one of my rat groups that rats like live mealworms. Since I didn't think I could feed live worms to my rats I bought freeze dried mealworms and at first they just sniffed them and looked at me like, what am I supposed to do with this?
But Scribbles decided to take one and after a bit of sniffing he munched it down and has been munching a few a day since then.
Flower just sniffed them at first.
But soon picked one up and started nomming on it.
She really likes them now.
Scribbles did the same and just sniffed them at first but quickly got the idea that they were a crunchy treat to eat.
And has been eating them when I give them to him ever since.
Freeze dried mealworms I can handle feeding to them since they like them. Oh the things we do for our pets. lol
