Hornworms are a fantastic feeder for your reptile and amphibian pets. Hornworms are high in calcium (47mg/100g) and low in fat (3%). Hornworms also have a soft exoskeleton, making eating and digestion easy! A wide variety of reptiles and amphibians love hornworms, including bearded dragons, leopard geckos, crested geckos, pacman frogs, monitors, tegus, skinks, pixie frogs, and many tree frogs.
Each of the pods contained in this product have a healthy gutloading food for hornworms, as well as 25 (generally 28-30) small, fat, healthy hornworms, ready to be fed to your pets. These hornworms are approximately 1/2″ when they are shipped out, so you’ll be able to grow them to the size you need with the provided food. You can also allow the worms to continue to grow. With the food present, they will reach 1.5″ long. If you’re looking for larger hornworms, check out our 12 count Hornworm Pods. They start out small, but have enough food to grow to 4″ or so.
Store the pod upside down, with the food at the top. This way, the hornworms will climb up to eat, and their waste will fall to the ‘bottom’ of the container for easy cleanup. Make sure to place them on a wire rack or something similar, so that they receive proper ventilation.
Hornworms will grow the fastest when kept in the low 80s F, but can be kept as low as the mid 50s F to slow growth. Hornworms can also be kept in the fridge (at 45F) for 2 days, then removed for one day, to slow growth.
