This nut mix is a healthy, protein-rich treat that squirrels and other small pets love. It's perfect for ground squirrels, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs, and it's also good for gray squirrels, marmosets, parakeets, and other small birds. The nuts unsalted and raw, so they're packed with healthy vitamins and minerals. And they're unroasted, so they contain as many of the healthy oils from the nuts as possible. The nuts are very small, so they're easy for small pets to chew and digest, and they don't create a mess. The downside of this treat is the price. The nuts are packaged in 14-oz. bags, so they're a little expensive: $17 for 14 oz. of nuts. However, they're also very fresh, and even if you only feed your pet a handful of nuts at a time, they'll last for months. So with proper care, these nuts should last longer than treats from other brands.
