14 Baby Medicinal Leeches, Type: "Hirudo Medicinalis". This is one of our most popular leech products. While we are not sure why Hirudotherapy patients and leech spas and clinics purchase this product, it is highly sought after. Babies are sometimes thin as pins or needles and have recently hatched from their mother's cocoon. Most leeches cannot pierce human skin on their own. If you plan to feed them until they grow up to be cosmetics or small leeches, you need to allow a larger leech to take the first bite, after which the babies can latch on and feed at the same bite site. Leeches can potentially be kept in cold water and cared for as pets without feeding for a while, until they become slightly larger and more ready to bite human skin. However, by keeping them without feeding, you run the risk of losing a small percentage of them in the process. We recommend purchasing baby leeches only if you feel confident in knowing how to care for these tiny bloodsuckers, as they may not be able to bite at first.
