The Gourmet Rodent, Inc. specializes in two very distinct areas of the reptile industry: frozen feeder animals and reptile production. In both areas of our business, we are committed to providing quality products and excellent customer service.
Since 1986, The Gourmet Rodent, Inc. has been providing individuals and institutions with superior quality frozen feeders. We currently work with several zoos, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and even a couple of theme parks to provide frozen mice, rats, rabbits, and chicks to feed many different kinds of animals. We also cater to the individual, having no minimum order requirements or “quantity per bag” restrictions on ordering. Please visit the Frozen Rodents section for pricing and ordering information.

Salmonella is a bacterium that is found in food products and live animals, and can cause gastroenteritis in humans. There are many good resources to become better informed on the proper way to handle animals that are potential carriers of Salmonella. One such resource is listed below:
