"Goliath" Hornworm Cups: We offer both the original (and beautiful!) GREEN WORM (original green food) and the lovely TEAL WORM (yellow food) ... try them both and give your animal the hornworm "taste test"!
Hornworms grow into large, soft bodied caterpilllars, similar to silkworms, but they are bright green and grow even bigger and faster (up to 4 inches!). Their natural green color makes them great for stimulating feeding response in fussy eaters and reptiles on hunger strike. Hornworms are a fantastic feeder source, are a great way to hydrate and give your exotics the nutrition and variety they need, and are relished by a wide variety of insectivores, including chameleons, bearded dragons, all kinds of lizards, frogs, birds, even sugar gliders and hedgehogs!
OUR (24 oz) HORNWORM CUP (great for juveniles, adults, and larger species - just specify the size hornworm you want in the shipping instructions when ordering online!) includes approx. 20+ (often a much higher count) hornworms and enough food to grow them to medium/large size (depending on how fast your animals gobble them up!). *[Note: as the worms grow to larger sizes a lower worm count may be required to fit worms in the cup.]
Self contained and easy to maintain, our Hornworm Cups make keeping fresh feeders on hand easy!!
IF YOU HAVE A SIZE PREFERENCE FOR YOUR WORMS, please remember to place size requests (be as specific as possible!) in the "special instructions" section (during "checkout") when ordering ... we will do our BEST to accommodate your size request as closely as possible. (NOTE: We can ship hornworms up to 2" in length, larger if shipped overnight -- remember, these worms will grow quite a bit during several days in transit, especially in warm weather)
[WE GENERALLY TRY TO SHIP HORNWORMS THAT ARE APPROX. 1 to 1-1/2" LONG OR THAT ARE SIZE APPROPRIATE FOR THE OTHER FEEDERS YOU ORDERED (IF ANY). SOMETIMES DUE TO INVENTORY WE DO NOT HAVE THAT SIZE OF HORNWORM IN STOCK. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO TAKE WHATEVER SIZE HORNWORMS WE HAVE IN STOCK, INCLUDING HATCHLINGS UP TO 2 INCHES, OR IF YOU DO NOT WANT US TO SUBSTITUTE FOOD COLOR IF NECESSARY IN ORDER TO MEET YOUR HORNWORM REQUEST, PLEASE STATE THIS IN THE SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS DURING CHECKOUT; BE VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM SIZE YOU WILL TAKE, I.E. "DO NOT SHIP HORNWORMS LESS THAN [FILL IN THE MINIMUM SIZE YOU REQUIRE IN INCHES] or MORE THAN [FILL IN THE MAXIMUM SIZE YOU CAN USE IN INCHES]" AND WE WILL NOT SHIP YOUR ORDER WITHOUT SPEAKING WITH YOU FIRST IF WE CANNOT MEET YOUR SIZE REQUIREMENTS. THANK YOU. ]
HORNWORMS GROW VERY FAST WHEN KEPT WARM (80-85 degrees max)
[YOU CAN SLOW DOWN THE GROWTH OF YOUR HORNWORMS BY KEEPING THEM COOL -- AROUND 50-55 DEGREES. (Do Not Refrigerate!) If you don't have a cool place or wine cooler where you can store your hornworms, you can put your hornworm cup(s) on one side of an ice chest/cooler and place resuable ice packs on the other side of the ice chest/cooler (be sure the ice pack doesn't touch the hornworm cup!), replacing the ice pack as needed to keep temperature cool - this will make your hornworms grow slowly and last even longer!]
[NOTE RE COLOR SUBSTITUTION: We may from time to time need to substitute cup(s) with green food for yellow food (or yellow food for green) in order to meet your size request. IF YOU DO NOT WANT US TO SUBSTITUTE GREEN FOOD FOR YELLOW (OR YELLOW FOOD FOR GREEN), PLEASE STATE THIS IN THE SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS DURING CHECKOUT - I.E. "DO NOT SWITCH HORNWORM FOOD COLOR!" AND WE WILL NOT SHIP YOUR ORDER WITHOUT SPEAKING WITH YOU FIRST IF WE CANNOT MEET YOUR SIZE REQUEST IN THE FOOD COLOR YOU ORDERED. THANK YOU.]
