Over twenty years ago, species-specific gels were created by a biologist/herpetologist who was looking to enhance his own reptiles’ diet. After years of research and manufacturing, FANG is the result. FANG’s quality cannot be beat. We put the animal first by researching its natural feeding requirements and behavior in order to develop a comparable diet.
