These hornworms ship straight from the Josh's Frogs facility. SHIPPING IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE!
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.
The container has a healthy gutloading food for hornworms, as well as 12 (generally 14-16) 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 4" long and weigh about 10 grams. Please note these hornworms are young when shipped, so they will last longer for you! They will grow larger before they run out of food!
If you're looking for more worms that will grow up to 1.5" or so, check out our 25 count Hornworm Pod.
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.
