Bearded Dragon eating hornworms


Goliath (Horn) worms are an exceptional way to get your picky reptile to eat, as their bluish-green color entices reptiles to chow down on them. All of our personal reptile collection absolutely loves these squishy worms! Horn Worms are a very delicious [I would know that ;)] and nutritious feeder insect for many reptile species including Bearded Dragons, Leopard Geckos, Crested Geckos, Chameleons, Monitors, Skinks and many more. The nutritional content is as follows…

  • Nutritional Content:
  • Protein 9%
  • Fat 3.07%
  • Calcium: 46.4mg/100g, 464ppm
  • Moisture 85%

These worms start very small about ½ inch, and can grow to about 4 inches in about 1-2 weeks (in warmer temperatures). One adult Goliath Worm can equal to feeding about 4-5 adult crickets, and comes with much more nutritional value as well.
