  • Asian medicinal leech. The buffalo or giant leech "Hirudinaria Manillensis". Baby / Juvenile / Hatchling. Asian Buffalo leeches are sold as hatchlings and will grow very quickly to become a huge almost monster sized leech as shown in the videos we have featured on YouTube. Asian medicinal leech babies need to be fed monthly (at first), then every 2-3 months, and can be used in "ayurvedic" style leech therapy to treat various diseases as part of their nutrition. This variety of leech has special care requirements that make it quite different from its Hirudo Medicinalis counterparts, which are very easy to keep, compared to the Buffalo leech. A temperature between 22-25 degrees Celsius (about 78 Fahrenheit) must be maintained at all times in your leech tank or leech aquarium, which means you need to equip yourself with a fish tank heater with a built-in thermometer. It is also not advisable to make the tank water deeper than 20cm because, since the Hirudinaria Manillensis are still babies, they may be crushed by the water pressure and not be able to float back up. Leeches can drown, so they should have plenty of air inside their leech container. If they have sucked blood and been fed and full, you will keep their temperature in the lower range, otherwise the blood inside them can freeze or boil and cause them to die. 22 degrees would probably be ideal to maintain in the aquarium after each feeding. Caring for fed buffalo is significantly more difficult than keeping hungry buffalo leeches and caring for them. Additionally, you must keep the leech tank in a dark room or covered with dark fabric, to ensure constant darkness for them, as they despise light immensely and are unable to latch and feed in light or cold. You will receive a complete sheet of further instructions, along with your order of buffalo leeches. Many customers choose to purchase leeches of this variety, breed them and sell them. Other people choose them for their enormous size and ability to draw blood. Whatever the reason, your grown buffalo leech is sure to be the topic of conversation at every dinner party, raising eyebrows and grabbing the attention of everyone who happens to stare at it. Seeing a live exotic leech of this magnificence in person is definitely a sight to behold!Nota: Le Sanguisughe di Buffalo Asiatiche sono attualmente nel'ordine arretrato per la spedizione a Maggio.
