Product Description


(Attention Customers: This product is the same formulation as Harlan Teklad Global 18% Protein Rodent Diet and is produced by Harlan Teklad)

Native Earth 18% Protein Rodent Diet is a natural-ingredient pelleted diet specifically formulated to provide the proper balance of all known nutrients considered essential for the growth, maintenance, and reproduction of rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters. 4018 is a fixed formula diet containing 18% protein and 5% fat. Promotes gestation, lactation, and consistent growth of rodents. Absence of animal protein and fish meal eliminates the presence of nitrosamines. Does not contain alfalfa, thus lowering the occurrence of natural phytoestrogens.

Great food for a great price, Harlan has been having some distribution changes as well as changing their customer base recently and I was having great difficulty getting any food from my supplier.
When I could no longer purchase the 2018 diet, I tried Mazuri, bad stuff, I saw skin issues and even with supplimentation I saw low birth rates(plus the rats hardly touched it, barly saw the stuff as edible)
I saw this food on anmazon, its about a $1 a pound shipped, so I decided what the heck, an went for it. Best. Buy. ever. My rodents are doing great on this stuff and they absolutly love it! I am now useing this as my food from now on, and with 20+ breeding rats with offspring, this is the best buy I could hope for :) If you have alot of mouths to feed, look no further, this stuff is great!

All my rats and mice love this stuff. Even the pups that are just starting to eat solid foods eat it, the size isn't a problem for them.
Blocks help keep their teeth worn down and prevent waste, since it's easy to pick up off the cage floor.
Since it's blended it prevents picky eaters from picking and choosing the bits they like. And unlike some pet store blocks you know you're getting good quality food.

I have 10 pet rats who Love this stuff, it is healthy and gives them a wonderfully shiny coat.
Unlike seed mixes sold in pet stores this food does not let the rats pick and choose their favorite bits and end up not getting a balanced diet, also unlike the other block type foods sold in most pet store this does not contain preservatives that have been shown to cause cancer in rats!

The price is amazing, you will most likely end up paying less per pound for this food than you will for nearly any other rat food on the market and be getting a Far superior product, it keeps good for up to a year in the freezer and with each rat eating 1-2 pounds of food per month none of this goes to waste in my house. I love that this is a complete diet in one piece, the protein and fat levels are a little high for an adult rat though (best for babies-8 months old) but that leaves plenty of room to supplement their diet with fresh veggies!

This review is for a supplier (callmeyng) not the product. Ordered 40-lb bag of "Native Earth". Got 33-lb bag of Harlan Teklad and a 7-lb clear unmarked bag. The shipping box was literally falling apart, barely holding up. The Harlan bag was 5 month overdue the expiration date. the product in a plastic bag was fine. The product in the large bag was contaminated or infested: pellets were covered with what looked like dust. We ended up hand picking "cleaner" pellets, throwing away about 70% of this product...Very disappointing...

Excellent! This is high-quality food and I'd recommend it over pretty much anything else. It's far better than Mazuri (which smells weirdly of fish food to begin with), my rats enjoy it (I am a rat lover and not a feeder breeder) much more, and it has everything they need! It's sold at an agreeable price, too.

Totally worth it with my 7 rats. We went through a bag of the premium pet store food a week at 9$ for 2 pounds thats 4.50 a pound. Where as with this its a great quality food at 1$ a pound after shipping. Totally worth the storage space.
