I bought these worms from the pet store a few days ago .... they are white, I cant remember what kind they are maybe silk worms as a treat for my cham ... I went in there today to get one out for a treat and the worms had broken into big shelled black bugs WHAT THE HELL ??? There skin is broken open like a snake skin and these black bugs are now in there .... worms turn into this ???? and I cant feed my cham this even though it was worms for a cham :s .... ???

That's funny, I just read that if you keep them and feed them they will mate and make more babies LOL ... so you will have lots of meal worms for your little guy !!! Saves money I guess :)

You can feed him the beetle.

My chams eat them all the time.

Its totally normal.

Don't freak out.

ANd no, those were not silkworms.

SIlkworms look like caterpillars and turn into moths after they cocoon,

what you have are mealworms, which turned into beetles.
