    Superworms

    I want to try to switch Fitzgerald from a diet of mostly crickets to a variety of worms, as I've really just had it with the smell and chirping. When I was trying to find an age for Bearded Dragons to be offered superworms, I found a lot of different things, and I am really confused. He's amost 14 inches now, some sites say 12 inches, some say 16, some say 5 months. Any ideas?

    I'd say a 12 inch bd should be able to eat superworms

    Be careful because Superworms can be very fatty. Silkworms are so much better for them to eat.

    They also have a lot of chitton (I think thats what it's called. I could be wrong) which is basically an exoskeleton which is real crunchy and not totally good for him. Crickets are actually better as a staple and worms more as a treat.
