    Hornworms

    Anyone in the NYC area interested in buying or trading feeders for some large hornworms? I have approx 1-2 dozen large hornworms ranging from 1.5 - 3.5" long. They're way too big for my Cham. Message for details. Thanks! Zack

    Hornworm bite?

    Hi all - We recently started feeding our male veiled Neil (10-months) hornworms and silkworms, in addition to crickets and butterworms. He's not particularly fond of the silkworms, and will eat crickets if there is nothing else, but LOVES hornworms. We've been feeding him only the smaller...

    hornworms-is it worth the extra effort to breed?

    So when I got two containers of MD hornworms for my cham they have now doubled in size! Some reaching 4" Still some smaller ones to feed (feeding a full grown male veiled) Can he actually eat those big ones if I let him? Or would those be too much..... Thinking of setting up a breeding...

    If the moths aren't breeding... feed em off!

    I've been hatching out some hornworm moths to try breeding, and a couple have come out a bit funky. This moth wouldn't stop flipping upside down and flapping all over the place, so I fed it off to one of our breeder male panthers. He loved it! -Jen

    Wow! Worf gobbles up those monster hornworms

    Despite the general rule about feeding insects no larger than the cham's head, but aware that soft-bodied insects like silkies and hornworms are different, I put in a very large green hornworm into Worf's enclosure yesterday. Worf is a 6.5 month old male veiled (now about 11 inches head to...
