These are great for most reptiles and amphibians but arnt they a little on the large size for darts?

We recommend people bowl feed them. They can actually grow to adult size and pupate on simply the decaying substrate in a vivarium.

The "extra small" are great for darts.

I have used these for a variety of species(darts and others) and while they are a great feeder readilly accepted by almost every species I have offered to, the main drawback at the present is cost.

In my experience, most of my frogs with the exception of my Bombina orientalis don't really like them. Most end up turning into adult flies once they escape the frogs.

Waxworms on the other hand, are accepted by all species that I have.

Hi All,
Thanks for your posts,

Food dishes are a good idea in many situations.

1/8 inch (newly hatched) size works well for smaller species.

Re Bombina - those I've kept have accepted calci worms, but sometimes difficult to use them in largely aquatic set-ups. Waxworms are fine on occasion, but may present some problems long term - high chitin and fat content and so on.

Best, Frank
