Phoenix Worms™
Phoenix Worms

Chances are you heard about Phoenix Worms from a friend, saw them at a reptile show, read about them on a reptile forum or saw our ads in Reptiles Magazine. However you got here, we're glad you dropped by to check us out. And if you decide to order a few cups for your pet, they will soon be thanking you, too, because HERPS GO NUTS OVER PHOENIX WORMS!

In development and tested by breeders since 2000, Phoenix Worms were introduced at the Daytona National Reptile Breeders Expo in 2005. They were deemed "the most exciting thing at the show" by Jon Coote, Chairman of the International Herpetological Society and Director of Research & Development for T-Rex Products. We were also mighty proud when 760 PETCO store managers voted Phoenix Worms #3 Best New Product out of 1000 products reviewed at their national meeting!

Phoenix Worms are the only calcium-rich feeder with the perfect balance of calcium and phosphorus, 1.5:1. This natural balance means that Phoenix Worms can be a staple in your pet's diet. Breeders report that hatchlings that are fed PWs right from the start are more than 30% larger than their clutch mates after just a few weeks! They also note higher activity levels and brighter colors for the babies that were fed PWs.

Here's why you will like this new premium feeder insect:
Phoenix Worms are ready to serve when you take them home. There's no need to dust or gut load these insects before feeding your pet. Phoenix Worms are low in fat and naturally have 23 to 61 times more calcium than other commonly fed feeder insects!

No need to culture them
You don't feed them
Stay fresh in their cup for weeks at room temperature (even longer at 50-60 degrees)
No noise
No odor
Will stay in a dish--no escapees in the house!
Convenient to take on vacation--or easy for a pet sitter to serve while you're away
You're going to enjoy watching your pet discover this new food. People tell us that their animals get excited when they see the "black cup" coming!

Here's why your pet will love Phoenix Worms:
They wiggle like crazy which excites and entices herps. Great food for a picky eater!
They taste good (a guess, but herps greedily consume them)
Come in four sizes to satisfy most pets, from darts to dragons
Stimulate the appetite of animals that don't readily feed
Can halt or reverse the effects of metabolic bone disease
Provide a boost of nutrition for gravid or just-laid females
A great start for all hatchlings!

Phoenix Worms are also a natural weapon against coccidia.
In addition to having a perfect balance of calcium and phosphorus,
Phoenix Worms provide high levels of natural lauric acid. Lauric acid
is known for its excellent antimicrobial properties including potent activity
against lipid coated viruses, clostridium and pathogenic protozoa including
coccidia. Lauric acid is a medium chain saturated fatty acid found in Phoenix
Worms as well as some vegetable oils and in dairy products. 53% of the fat
in Phoenix Worms is beneficial lauric acid, a proven antimicrobial especially
effective against coccidiosis.


The small size Phoenix Worms™ (8mm, about 5/16" long) are favorites of larger dart frogs, chameleons, baby geckos, turtles, and Venus Fly Trap plants. Tropical fish enjoy this size, too!

Medium size Phoenix Worms™ (12mm, about 7/16" long) are the size preferred by many herps--small bearded dragons, skinks, small geckos, chameleons, anoles, turtles, and many others.
This is also a good size for larger tropical fish.

Large Phoenix Worms™ (18mm, about 3/4" long) are the right size for larger pets. Bearded dragons, large geckos, monitors and veiled chameleons are all huge fans of large Phoenix Worms!

Wax Worms
Wax Worms
(Galleria Mellonella) 

Uses: 
Wax worms make excellent treats for reptiles
Many breeders use them to help fatten up their reptiles Great fishing bait 

Care: 
Wax worms do not tolerate heat well and should be maintained around 55 degrees. 

The best place to store wax worms for extended periods of time is in the butter tray of the refrigerator, if that is not possible they can be stored at room temperature with low humidity. 

Wax worms do not require feeding as they are at a point in their life cycle that they are just living off the fat stored up in their bodies, so the longer you keep them the smaller they will become. Make sure you remove any dead (black) wax worms from your container as you keep them.
