Making your own Mammal Teats
Purchasing latex rubber teats to feed orphaned wildlife can be expensive as teats often
have a very short life span. With these inexpensive wooden teat moulds you can make your own mammal teats for a fraction of the price.
All moulds have a diameter of 17mm. The photograph of the moulds also shows a centimeter scale of teat lengths to assist you to choose
your preferred sizes. We will make any size and shape of mould you may require. If you cant see what you are looking for, email us.
have a number of latex suppliers listed in the Teat Making Instructions covering each state. If you find a good supplier in your area
please let us know so we are able to add their details to the list to assist other carers.
If you think it is hard making your own
teats just read the instructions.

The cost of one mould is $6.00. Postage for 1-13 moulds is the price of an Australia Post 500g satchel which seems to go up in
price on a regular basis but is about $7.20. With every order of five moulds you will receive a stand as well. All orders also receive
instructions. The picture below is a set of five moulds which would cost $30.00 plus postage.
Another example, if you require the whole set of 10 moulds, the cost would be $60 plus postage and would include 2 stands plus instructions.
If you would like to order moulds, please email for direct deposit details.
The more moulds you have of your favourite size the easier
it is to make the teats.
Here is a picture of my moulds on the stand after 2 latex dips. As I am able to preserve the teats for an
indefinite period in the freezer I generally make what I require for the whole year in one batch.
Orders are taken by email ONLY. Do NOT telephone Long Grass Systems with your order.
