  • Pack of 15 leeches. Type: Hirudo Verbana. This is one of our most popular leech products. Although we are not sure why hirudotherapy patients and leech therapy clinics purchase this product, it is highly sought after. Babies are sometimes as thin as needles and have recently emerged from their mother's cocoon. Most "Baby" leeches cannot penetrate human skin on their own. If you plan to feed them until they grow up to be cosmetic or small leeches, you must allow a larger leech to make the first bite, after which the babies can attach and feed on the same bite site. "Baby" leeches can be kept in cold water and cared for as pets without feeding for a while until they grow a little bigger and are ready to bite human skin. However, by keeping them without feeding, you risk losing a small percentage of them in the process. We recommend that you only buy 'Baby' leeches if you feel confident that you know how to care for these little leeches as they may not be able to bite at first.
    When your order arrives, you should immediately transfer the leeches to a jar of cold water. You can also use rain or tap water.
