Bearded Dragon Trevo Worms / Bearded Dragon Butter Worms
superworms, Bearded dragon Trevo worms,
also called Butter worms, are the soft bodies
larvae of the Chilean moth (Chilecomadia moorei). These
moths breed naturally on the so-called Trevo bush (Trevoa
trinervis) where the feeding Trevo worms can be collected.
Bearded dragon Trevo worms are
naturally high in fat and calcium. They are said to have more
than double the calcium content of any other feeder insect!
Dragon Trevo Worm Feeding
Because of their
high fat content Trevo worms should only be fed in limited
amounts to growing and baby Bearded dragons. Another problem is
that Bearded dragons might refuse to eat anything else if they
are spoiled with these worms. More nutritious
foodstuffs such as crickets and
cockroaches should make
up the bulk
of Bearded dragon food.
Trevo worms can be offered in a shallow escape proof dish.
Their sizes (2 - 3.8 cm / ¾ - 1½ " in length) makes them perfect
to feed to adult Bearded dragons. Trevo worms are perfect for the occasional adult Bearded
dragon snack and to improve poor body condition scores of
emaciated individuals. It can be fed in larger amount to gravid
Bearded dragon females.
