  • Mazuri® Leaf-Eater Primate Diet is designed to be an essential part of a total primate feeding system and may be used in conjunction with all other Mazuri® primate products.
  • Primates generally consume about 2% to 4% of their body weight in food each day on a dry matter basis (i.e., a 50 kg animal will eat 1 to 2 kg of food per day, on a dry matter basis).
    • Mazuri® Leaf-Eater Primate Diets can be supplemented with fresh vegetables and fruit if this is desired to provide variety in the diet, as long as the dry matter of these items does not exceed 50% of the dry matter consumption. Using typical produce and browse, a feeding program on as “as fed” basis is would consist of 60% produce/browse and 40% Mazuri® primate products (i.e., a diet may be 6 lb. of produce/browse plus 4 lb. of one or a mix of Mazuri® primate products).
  • The amount of diet the animal requires will vary according to its age, size, life stage, health status and activity of the animal and the environmental temperature.
    • Adjust daily feed intake based on the health status, body condition and nutrient level desired to meet the needs of your primates.
    • Diet may be soaked to soften the biscuits for infants or animals that have difficulty chewing.
  • Fresh, clean water should be available at all times.
  • Primates require ascorbic acid (vitamin C) in their daily diet. Mazuri® Primate Diets contain a stabilized form of vitamin C that is stable under appropriate storage conditions for at least 1 year from the date of manufacturing printed on the bag.
