On the side of Carlyle's tank, there are a number of small white/pinkish worms squirming around on the moss and against the glass. A couple of questions to go with this statement:
What are they?! Where did they come from?!
They look like teeny tiny larvae, could the required moisture and humidity have brought them out/created them? They are quite comparable to the nasty larvae you find crawling around in the garbage can on a hot summer day, but incredibly smaller than them, about 1/8" in full length.
Are they harmful? Should I get them out immediately or will Carlyle eat them?
I'm just afraid they're going to give Carlyle a parasite or infection of some kind. I'm mostly concerned because I know that if mealworms roam free, they may bite back when the gecko/lizard/anything supposed to be eating it isn't paying attention. If these larvae grow large enough are they gonna bite back or make Carlyle sick some how??
Please help! I'm very concerned and I'm still just a month into this reptile owner thing. I'm still learning!!!!
