ProBugs Silkworm Pupae
Silkworm pupae are the pupal stage of the Domestic Silk Moth (Bombyx mori). They are higher in both protein and fat than silkworm caterpillars, which means that they pack more of a nutrition punch per bug. Silkworm pupae have been used as preferred feeders for Japanese Koi for the last century, and are known to enhance growth, fish slime coat, and provide amino acids for stronger liver function.
ProBugs Silkworm Pupae are vacuum-sealed to preserve all the moisture and flavor of live feeders, with all the convenience of a prepared diet. It's the perfect thing to have on hand in case of emergency, for a pet-sitter to use when you're out of town, or simply to increase variety in your reptile's diet.
Each pouch contains 15g of silkworm pupae.
