:Wht is the best Rat food for ball python feeder rats? I am hoping for something high in calcium.
If you are feeding a balanced diet to the rats then their bodies will do the rest. You aren't gonna throw their calcium off too much either way. Throwing in a cuttlebone will provide them with a neato keen toy for a couple of hours but doubtful it will do anything for calcium levels. You can feed straight lab blocks. I don't, my rats are too spoiled and ignore them. Mine get a variety of dog and cat kibbles, leftovers...like rice, veggies, cooked potatoe, meats, chicken bones, pasta...etc. They live everywhere and on anything...they will eat a lot of variety.
