Silkworms (Bombyx mori) are the caterpillars of the Domestic Silk Moth. Although best known for their role in making silk cloth, silkworms also make nutritious feeders for reptiles, amphibians, and other pets. They're low in fat, have a good amount of protein, and are soft-bodied for easier digestion.

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 5 silkworms.
