These silkworms are so much easier to feed than live food. The best thing is if it's too big you can just cut it up which you can't do with live food. They are also very soft and easy for your pet to eat. My Dragon loves these worms and eats them everyday. They also don't require any maintenence like live food just pop them in the freezer and they will last until the expiry date and they only take about 10-15min to thaw.
