Pictured is, what I believe, a tooth. I found it in the food, also pictured.
Anyone got any idea what it's from? How did it get there? I've got no animals with teeth like that so it couldn't have ended there by accident?

Haven't you ever eaten a piece of fish with a bone in it? I assume that's all it is.

The label says the food is red mosquito larvae. Do the ingredients include anything else?

That appears to be the foreleg from a roach, cricket, grasshopper or similar insect.

i have pet roaches. this doesn't look like a leg to me. probably a fish bone.

How big is it? Can we see the ingredients list?

Nope found it on web. 100% red mosquito larvae. Maybe it's just a dried larva?

Or, the stinger from a giant mosquito?

Food like this are net scooped from outdoor growing ponds and then dried and packaged. I almost made an entire weird-looking shrimp from pieces found in a jar of gammarus once! Or finding small fish in plankton mixes, or tiny snails in bloodworms. There are going to be "contaminants" that slip through occasionally.

Thank you, and....ummm..... you have pet roaches?

Forgive me for this, but the smell alone would be enough to send me packing.

I hope there are scientific purposes in mind here & you're not breeding these just so you can gross out your little sister?

Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches are often kept as pets

I think I'll stick to cats, dogs and fish thank you.

There is not such a lack of insects here that I need to bother feeding them.

But again I got to ask you,
Don't the roaches really stink?

I say this because I used to keep crickets to feed my oscar fish but they stink so bad I couldn't have them in the house.
