About This Product

Hornworms are a fantastic feeder for your pet reptile and amphibians. They're high in calcium (47mg/100g) and low in fat (3%). Hornworms also have a soft exoskeleton, making eating and digestion easy! A wide variety of reptiles and amphibians love hornworms, including bearded dragons, leopard geckos, crested geckosPac-Man frogs, monitors, tegus, skinks, pixie frogs, and many tree frogs.

The container has a healthy gutload food for hornworms, as well as at least 12 (generally 14-16) healthy hornworms, ready to be fed to your pets. These hornworms are approximately 1/2 inch when they are shipped out. They will grow in transit, and will be larger when you receive them (especially in warm weather). You can also allow the worms to continue to grow. With the food present, they will reach around 4 inches long and weigh about 10 grams. Please note these hornworms are young when shipped, so they will last longer for you! They will grow larger before they run out of food!

If you're looking for more worms that will grow up to 1.5 inches or so, check out our 25 count Hornworm Cups. They also start out small, but with more worms per cup and slightly less food, they won't grow to the size of the worms in our 12 count cup.

Try Repashy's SuperHorn to serve up more food for your hornworms! Now available in 3 oz., 6 oz., 12 oz., and 70.4 oz. jars!

How to Store: Keep the pod upside down, with the food at the top. This way, the hornworms will climb up to eat and their waste will fall to the 'bottom' of the container for easy cleanup. Make sure to place them on a wire rack or something similar so that they receive proper ventilation. Hornworms will grow the fastest when kept in the low 80s, but can be kept as low as the mid 50s to slow their growth. Hornworms can also be kept in the fridge (at 45°F) for up to 2 days, then removed for one day, to slow growth.

How to Feed to Your Pet: Hornworms are best tong-fed or at least under supervision, as they will climb and explore any enclosure they're put in. They can also potentially bite your critters—although it's not hard, it could still be irritating and stressful to your animals.

Excellent and Healthy

My Water Dragon loves these. They arrived super healthy. I haven't been able to find any horn worms locally that looked decent and healthy, so I am more than willing to pay shipping to get these beauties from Josh's Frogs.

My Leopard Gecko loves these

I thought I ordered 25 small hornworms, but received 12 large ones instead. This turned out fine. My gecko got so excited when I put one of these big caterpillars in her terrarium, she tore it in half. She loves them! I've never seen her get so excited about her prey before.

Love these

Just wanted to take the time to write this review since I just received my shipment. I really love that you use the taller plastic containers it makes it easier and gives them enough room and food to grow for my larger lizards. Also they will all living and in great condition plus a lot of hornworm in each container. Will be purchasing again

Arrived in perfect condition. I was so excited to give my leopard gecko, Echo, them to try. They are the perfect size for him. Well, he has found his new favorite treat. He was so excited and went full hunter mode on them. Definitely will buy them again!
