Approximately 15 Grams of Waxworms
Waxworms are the soft bodied larvae (Caterpillars) of the Greater waxmoth (Galleria mellonella)
Waxworms are often used as a treat food for reptiles as they have a fat content that is higher than other live insects, being soft bodied they make a good addition to amphibian diets. Fed sparingly they make an excellent addition to the diet.
Waxworms if kept warm and fed will quickly pupate into moths which in their own make a nice treat for reptiles such as chameleons that are stimulated by flying foods. However if you wish to keep your waxworms as worms for as long as possible then dont feed them and keep them at the coolest room temperatures. They will typically last as worms for a week and then after 7 days start to form a brown chrysalis before pupating into moths.
