New to Josh's Frogs - Hornworm Snack Packs! A cup of healthy hornworms for your critters that ship free!

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. 

You have 2 options - a 12ct pod or 25ct pod. The 12ct hornworms will grow to about 4" in length on the provided food, while the 25ct hornworms will grow to about 1.5" before they run out of food.

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.

Good Price Worms a bit small Review by Brittany
Quality
I switched from ordering from another supplier due to having my beardie end up with parasites from the hornworms. I came back to Josh's Frogs due to them being reliable, affordable, and great customer service. The worms are fairly small and take a decent amount of time to get chunky so with that in mind, I usually order 2 containers of the 50...wait a few days then order the next 2 so they have time to grow. Overall they are really a fair price compared to other suppliers. I was spending almost 50+ on 12 worms with shipping of $20! With that being said, if you do not mind the smaller size and providing your animal with additional food items, these are a great steal. (Posted on 9/27/2017)
Ok, but have gotten better. Review by Natalie

First off, I love the customer service provided by this company and it's why I always order my reptile food here! When I placed my first order, it got lost in the mail and USPS wouldn't let me file a missing package claim. I was sent a replacement free of charge which arrived quickly!

That being said, the hornworms weren't what I expected. I needed the 1/2" caterpillars as advertised but most of the ones I received were already 1 1/2"+, nearly the same size as the anole they were supposed to be fed too. Of the 25 caterpillars, 4 were small enough for him. 7 were dead on arrival and the rest were half dead . Thankfully my ferrets enjoy them too so they didn't go to waste! I would have loved adding more variety to my anoles diet but I won't be ordering hornworms again. (Posted on 7/27/2017)
Highly recommend Review by April

The 24 pack actually had 30 hornworms in it (thanks guys) and lasted my 8 month old leopard gecko just over a month. (Only one worm was DOA because it was squished against the side of the cup.) When they first came in they were small so I gave him 5 the first day he loved them so much. Cut way back on his intake (obviously) as they got bigger. I will definitely be reordering. More than enough food for the bugs to survive 2 months, maybe more. Also included in the box was a care guide for the worms. I used the suggested "2 days in the fridge, one day out" method.
