In this video we compare the nutritional values of seven different feeder worms readily available to reptile keepers. Which are the healthiest for your reptiles at home? The results may surprise you!
*Please note that the nutritional composition of each insect feeder may vary from what was mentioned in the video based on alternate sources. We based our values off of the scientific papers referenced below.*

*Correction!! Hornworms are 12 for $7 through Fangnfur. I had it swapped. My apologies! That's actually a really really good price!
