About This Product

Butterworms (25 count) are larvae of the Chilean Moth (Chilecomadia moorei). Butterworms are popular fishing bait in South America, and exported to the United States for the same purpose. Fortunately for us (and your hungry pets!), butterworms make a great snack! Butterworms are relatively low in fat and are very high in calcium. Butterworms' bright coloration and undulating, catepillar like movement entices even the pickest of eaters to chow down. Butterworms can be between 3/8ths" and 1.5" but are usually around 3/4ths", and are consumed by bearded dragons, leopard geckos, aquatic turtles, chameleons, monitors, tegus, fat tail geckos, and many tarantulas, centipedes, and scorpions.

Josh's Frogs cannot ship butterworms to the following states: Hawaii, Louisiana, Oregon, Vermont and West Virginia.

How to Store

Simply put the container the butterworms come in in your fridge door. Butterworms come packed in wheat bran, which they may eat. Store butterworms at 38-42F. At these temps, butterworms may last a month or longer!

How to Feed

It's common for butterworms to spin a cocoon during storage - carefully tear this apart to reveal the butterworm. Remove butterworms from the wheat bran and place them in a bowl, or tong feed them to your animal.

My Whites Tree Frogs love these

Great, healthy butter worms my whites tree frogs love these


Good product

Great product


Greatly loved

My guys love butterworms! I feed them to my beardies, leopard gecko, and box turtle. They love ‘em!


Apparently Delicious

I bought these for my adult beardie to have as a treat. He is a picky eater and immediately devoured the butterworm that I placed in his dish. Now he is patiently waiting hoping that I drop the whole cup in there.


Good Treat

Feed to my lizards every once a while and last very long in fridge.
