Hornworms are perfect for the fussy eater and are known to be the 'magic trick' to end a reptile's hunger strike.  Not only are they an enticing blue-green color but they are very high in water making them a great way to rehydrate your animal.

Keep the habitat with the cup upside down on a screen or grate so the worms get fresh air.   If you'd like your worms to grow larger, keep them at 82°.  Keep them at 55° to slow their metabolism when they're at the desired size (a wine cooler works great for this).

Hornworms will double in size when kept at warmer temperatures.  If you feel your worms are too small, place them in a warm location (next to a reptile bulb for example) and they will grow extremely quickly for you!

Shake out the yellow little 'kernels', these are the droppings and will build up quickly
