Wax Worms?

Postby NegativeCreep » Sat Nov 22, 2008 4:35 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I know that they are only good for treats.. but since my little girl is becoming so much fun to handle and hang out with, I would really like to give her some treats! Premiumcrickets has a small amount, 35 for less than $2, so I'd like to try them out. But, I'm afraid they will be too big. Blazey is about 10 inches now. I know they are soft-bodied, so risk of impaction is nil, but I would assume they aren't good if they are too big. She chews really good, and sometimes she gets a hold of 3 or 4 phoenix worms at a time..

So.. long story short.. can a 10" beardie eat wax worms?

A 10 inch bearded dragon can safely consume wax worms with out the chance of impaction. Just make sure your little dude does not get to addicted to them :lol:

We will def. keep an eye on her! One every couple of days or so.. I just think they would be a great reward for her good behavior during baths and outside of her viv and stuff

Thanks!

hehe do be careful, when I first introduced waxies as a treat Dex immediately decided she was going to refuse to eat anything else.
It took quite a while for her to stop sulking and start eating anything else!

Well.. turns out I'm nixing the Waxies from my order.. the $1.85 cost of the worms doubled my shipping cost. They apparently force you to choose overnight (which is NOT overnight to my area) for guaranteed live delivery. I could really care less about a guarantee on $2 worth of worms for that much shipping!! :banghead: I will find a different way to treat my little girl.. oh well.. we all know how spoiled our little BDs are anyways!

The pet stores near us don't carry anything but crix, mealworms, and now calciworms (knock-off, expensive phoenix worms).. maybe some time I will stumble upon them..

Thanks for the replies, though!!!! :blob5:

u cna get them at pet-co here in tulsa. i know ur in tahlequah so if you make a treck up to pets mart or pet-co off of 41st st. they have them there. just bought some yesterday.

if you wanted to buy about fifty at a time i can sell you some when i get my order next time. they are like 6$ for a cup of fifty at the pet store. i would sell a cup for just a five dollar bill if you came to tulsa. and you would get more than fifty and they would all be alive! lol! i had a dozen or so dead ones in the cup i bought yesterday.

I like to refer to it as "Yarn Snob".. but oh yes, there's a big difference between cruddy hot-pink acrylic yarn and yummy yummy local alpaca hand spun.. mmmmm squishy!

mmm pringles :lol:

My boy was addicted to wax worms and he wouldn't eat anything else for a couple days when i stopped giving it to them then slowly started eating crickets again. I opened the box of wax worms recently (uneaten for a month) to find a bunch of moths inside that almost flew out. It was nasty!
