Drosophila are a tiny winged, but flightless fly due to genetically impaired wing muscles. Their full life cycle lasts around 25-30 days. These cultures come in a self contained tub which requires no maintenance. Each culture is shipped fresh with approximately 25-50 Flies.
These flies are ideal for small amphibians and reptiles, particularly poison arrow frogs, small day geckos, anole lizards, small newts and salamanders, hatchling chameleons, spiderlings, mantids as well as various top feeding fish species.
These cultures should be kept at room temperature.
