Thank you for your reply.
: Last year was the second year of my keeping
: tenrecs and the first time my pair had bred.
: it cost me a fortune in mouse pinkies and
: insects to keep the pair and her five babies.
: This year my confidence had grown, so I weaned
: the adults onto ferret kibble, moistened with
: a little water. the mother has shown her
: babies to eat the kibble. They are all growing
: well and are much more active than last years
: babies. So in answer to whether they need live
: foods, no they dont.
: I shall probably change tem over to a lower
: fat cat kibble as they grow.

: Is it absolutely necessary that tenrecs have
: live food? Are there substitutes, such as
: freeze dried insects?
