Reptiworm Nutritional Values!

Reptiworms, also known as Phoenix Worms and Black Soldier Fly Larvae, are delicious and nutritious for your carnivore/omnivore critters. They’re quiet. They don’t smell and you don’t have to feed them! They’re a complete replacement for crickets and other insect feeders. They’re now available in a plethora of sizes for even hatchling reptiles.
