Help! Am I too worried?!


My husband stupidly fed a huge hornworm to our 11 month old male last night. I’m nervous about the size of the worm causing an issue. I’ve watched him very closely today and he seems to be normal just not hungry. Other than lack of eating should there be anything else specific I should pay closer attention to? This was after the worm .... :/

So my veiled will not touch “smaller” hornworms. But will devour gigantic Ones that are ridiculously too big for her. I believe she enjoys the fight/struggle and will work at one for 3 minutes happy as a clam.

Hornworms are pretty squishy and adult male panther tend to handle them. Just be aware they BITE. Theyve gotten Mona a few times.
