About This Product

Live Arrival Guaranteed in any weather for insects and plants!

These are European Nightcrawlers (Eisenia hortensis), which are slightly smaller than our other Canadian variety. While mature Canadian Nightcrawlers can average between 3.5-6", European Nightcrawlers average between 4-5" when mature, but at time of sale average 1.5"-2.25".

Nightcrawlers are a nutritious snack for your pet reptiles or amphibians! A wide range of exotics love nightcrawlers, especially aquatic and box turtles, newts, salamanders, and Pac-Man frogs.

We sell 25 nightcrawlers (plus an overcount) in a 16 oz container. European Nightcrawlers do not need to be stored in the fridge, and are hardy in a much wider range of temperatures than Canadian Nightcrawlers. This makes these worms much better suited for summer shipping in many cases. While they are tolerant of temperatures between 38-90 degrees, the temperature range where they are happiest is between 60-70. These worms can keep for 2-3 weeks without feeding if kept at cooler temperatures, however to extend their shelf life especially if kept at room temperature we suggest giving them a supplemental food source.

We also offer a worm food that can be used for gutloading or as a boost for colony growth!
