Releasing Silk Moths

Postby Geoff0410 » Thu Jun 10, 2021 5:29 pm

Hey there, I ordered some silk worms and concerned if they end up turning into a moth. I live in ontario and would like to know if its safe to release them if they end up going through their metamorphosis.

No, never release any animal into the wild. You can feed the moths to your dragon, they aren't very big.
Silk moths don't have any mouth parts and never eat.

They hatch, mate and die, all in about 3 days. If your dragon won't eat them, you can just pop them in the freezer overnight then dispose of them.
