    Smile Did We Ever Conclude Horned Worm and Silk Worm Discussion?

    I know this may be ancient history but did we ever decide that Horned and Silk Worms were not a good thing to feed to Horned Frogs?

    From what I have read silk worms are a no no! Don't know what a horned worm is here in UK, but if its a Mario worm then that's a no also.

    Hornworms are also known as Goliath Worms.

    Hornworms are a really good treat, but bad for a staple. They re kind of fatty and the frogs do tend to like them because they are an aggressive caterpilar. When grabbed by tongs they thrash around which usually gets the frog's attension. They are also somewhat brightly colored being a blue/green or teal color with whittish markings downtheir sides. Frogs usually get excited over them, but not all frogs will take them.

    These also get very large. When the caterpilar is mature enough to pupate it is about 4 inches long and maybe 3/4 of an inch wide. A very large meal. They are safe feeders, but grow rapidly. Reaching their 4 inch length in about 2 weeks or less. They are also kind of expensive.
