Just fed one of my winter white dwarf hamsters with a live meal worm. He absoloutly loved it. Anyone else fed theirs meal worm or any other live food before? :2thumb:

When I bred and showed hamsters, I would regularly give them garden worms, tinned dog and cat meat etc. In the wild they would eat anything they came across in their tunnels and meat is just protein. They are omnivorouse, not vegetarians so feed away.

I give them to my mice and rats too as treats (As well as the hedgehogs) and they absolutely love them. I've actually had mice stop mating to come and eat mealworms, you know it's got to be good when it's better than sex! :whistling2:
