Caring for the Amazing Phoenix Worm

14th Apr 2020

There are few things that excite the reptile world the way the Phoenix Worm did when it made its first big appearance at the National Reptile Breeders’ Expo in 2005. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, breeders develop a new breed of worm that is rich in calcium and low in fat, making it a nutritious option for reptiles. The worms are very easy to take care of and will last a long time under your care. You’ll see, from these care tips, Phoenix Worms are a dietary option you just can’t ignore!

Keep Them at Room Temperature

These insects are perfectly content at room temperature, making them a breeze to care for. No refrigeration needed - although they can last even longer if you do decide to put them in the fridge.

They Are Ready to Serve

Unlike some other insects, you don’t need to dust them or rinse your Phoenix Worms prior to serving. These little nuggets are ready to go when you walk in the door. They also travel well and are great to take on vacations if you have a reptile traveling buddy.

There Is No Need to Feed

Phoenix Worms are very low maintenance and don’t need any nutrition themselves. They feed on their own body fat, and there is no need to give them any other food source.

They Are Great for Picky Eaters

Some reptiles and turtle species can be finicky eaters, especially if their food isn’t moving. These worms are always on the go, so picky eaters are intrigued and want to dive right in when presented with Phoenix Worms.

They Come in Three Distinct Sizes

  • Small Phoenix Worms: 8mm, typically. Good for small reptiles, geckos, chameleons, turtles, and Venus flytraps.
  • Medium Phoenix Worms: 12mm, typically. Good for average-sized geckos, turtles chameleons, and even large tropical fish.
  • Large Phoenix Worms: 18mm, typically. These worms are good for large bearded dragons, large geckos, monitors, and veiled chameleons.
