Phoenix worms for bearded dragons with regards to babies

Postby deagan182 » Tue Apr 03, 2012 9:09 am

Was browsing reptilecity website and came across these phoenix worms they now have in stock
Was wondering what is the opinions regarding these for bearded dragon babies and juveniles as the discription says they hav calcium and many more things

Below is the link for more info:

Because my bearded dragon refuses to eat mealworms he just bites their heads and squashes their heads and spits them out.

Thanx in advance

I have not personally, but many of our customers have been using it to feed bearded dragons.

We are partnered with Agriprotein and are being supplied with phoenix worms/BSF larvae, so we sell them by the litre because they are such versatile feeds - capable of being fed to arachnids, birds, fish, mammals and rats.

Different life stages of the larvae are better for different animals based on their digestive capabilities. Ideally, you want the white (instar 3-5) ones to start out because it is an entirely new feed and you want your pet to get used to the idea of eating them. Once he gets the hang of it though he will eat the bigger darker ones (Instar 7+). When they are in this stage of development they wriggle much less.

We can also post or courier orders to your nearest post-office if you live in South Africa.

If you would like more information feel free to drop me an email at phoenixbugz@gmail.com. :)
