Are the feeder lizards on the website parasite free?
I was wondering if the feeders offered are captive bred or wild caught I do regularly buy insects from you guys but trying to diverse my ackie monitors diet and I know the occasional lizard gets him going but am cautious worried that he may consume an infected feeder if not captive raised.

All our lizards are captive bred. We are conscientious as we know they will be fed to snakes and reptiles and wouldn't want to pass on the parasites associated with wild-caught lizards to them.
Our breeders assure us they are treated with Panacur during rearing to eliminate parasites as part of their husbandry, much as puppies are dewormed by dog breeders before sale.
Unless you specify, our feeder lizards are B-quality reptiles, meaning they may be missing part of a tail or their toes. If you want to keep them as pets (many people do!) leave us a note in the instructions field and we'll pick our nicest quality lizard for you.
