Foods for Terrarium Creatures


In this section we would like to introduce the DAJANA PET product line for terrarium creatures.

In the same way the word aquarium is based on the Latin word “aqua” for water, the word terrarium comes from the Latin word for land, “terra.” It isn’t difficult to see then that terrariums involve raising dry land creatures. However, the actual difference in the definition of an aquarist and terrarium hobbyist is often nearly indistinguishable and very difficult to define.

And therefore, as is the case with aquarium foods, specialist companies try to offer compensatory foods for aquarium creatures.
These companies do this for the same reason as with the aquarium hobby: the gradually changing conditions for the collection of natural foods and in response to the ever increasing demand from terrarium enthusiasts. In this way a great number of types of food have been created using high-quality and wholesome natural ingredients. Another important factor is the nutritional balance of these foods, since terrarium creatures, just like fish in aquariums, lack exposure to natural sunlight. This deficit must be compensated with essential vitamins in foods. This is something our technologists keep in mind when formulating our products.

Be persistent: don’t let your initial failures discourage you. Animals, just like people, are often conservative around new food and may take a while to develop a taste for it. For many species the introduction of a new type of food is something that takes time and patience. Hobbyists raising young fish and animals are especially aware of this fact. The simplest and best proven method is to introduce a new food gradually along with the original food. It is also important to experiment with the best way to serve the food. Some animals require the food to be pre-soaked before it is served. Make sure that dry land animals always have a fresh supply of drinking water. In time the majority of animals learn to accept a new food.

Our product line for terrarium animals includes not only tablets that can be given to both fish and, for example, turtles, but also special types of food intended for iguanas. What’s more, foods are further divided for animals at different stages of their lives in connection with their rates of growth. Our easy-to-understand product line features foods for plant-eating animals (phytophagic) as well as meat-eating (zoophagous) species. Ingredients that bolster immunity and support the overall health of animals are also added to foods.

Monitor the ingredients foods are made of and judge for yourself if they are appropriate for your animals.
And finally we offer you one more recommendation: surely you create various mixes for your animals using your own recipes, including supplemental vitamins. Notice that you make these mixes of yours from the individual special components we offer in our product line. After all, dried insects or products from freshwater spirulina and chlorella are often an important component in the foods of animals living in the wild.

Therefore, don’t be afraid to try something new or a product that has already been introduced on the market. Many of them are useful to both aquarists and terrarium hobbyists and all of our foods are carefully controlled and produced from ingredients that meet the highest demands on quality.
