The following food composition tables provide detailed food composition data on the nutritionally important components of whole vertebrate prey items excluding fish. The food composition tables provide values for energy and nutrients including protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals. The food composition data also offers a good idea of how the nutritional content of individual prey items vary from one another. This information can be compared to the requirements of the species you are feeding and will help determine the appropriate quantities and sizes/amounts of food to maintain the optimal health of the animal in your care.
