Available Greater Tenrecs

Posted on: October 30th, 2022 by

We are the FIRST breeder in Canada to successfully produce a litter of these amazing animals in 2022!

Each Greater Tenrec depending on color will vary between $2000 to $2500 regardless of gender for the tenrec only. As tenrec genitals are inside their body… the only way to positively identify their gender is through a DNA lab in Europe. This will cost $100 which will be included at the final cost of the animal and is a MUST. Prices are (pre-tax). You will never get a tenrec that is an unknown gender. You will get this certificate with you once we schedule for a pickup.

Being Omnivores, all of our babies are fed with high quality food and a mix of different bugs such as Giant Mealworms, Superworms, Waxworms, Hornworms, Butterworms, Phoenix Worms. In addition, we also feed live or frozen pinkies, fuzzies, quail chicks, quail eggs to ensure the animal you’re getting won’t be very picky and get the most nutrient. All of our feeders are gut loaded and always dusted with calcium powder to prevent Metabolic Bone Disease.

Lifespan: Approximately 8 to 10 years
