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.
The Phoenix Worm is a good, nutritious live food for reptiles that is naturally high in calcium.
Why should you consider adding Phoenix Worms to your pet's diet?
- High calcium content - 23 to 60 times more than any other feeder insect
- Stays fresh in the cup they are shipped in for weeks at room temperature (just add up to 10 drops of water to the non-food packing media if the Phoenix Worms become dehydrated)
- No feeding necessary
- No odor or noise
- Extremely active - easily noticed by your pet.
We considered adding either the Silk Worm or Phoenix worm to our product line. Both have the attraction of a soft shell and high calcium content. We choose the Phoenix worm because of the overall ease of keeping. Their cost per worm is a little more higher than other worms, but deliver more value (in terms of nutrition) than any other worm on the market.
