Superworms attacked visciously

I tried feeding one of my rosies a mealworm some time back with no success. Today an order of mealworms and crickets came in, and included were some superworms. Those guys are about an inch long! So, I thought, let's give it another try.

Wow, all the Ts I gave one of those to just attacked them and began shredding. My rosies seemed the most viscious about. One of my stripe-knees let the superworm dig into the substrate. I looked in later and she had somehow gotten a hold of the thing. He must have stuck his head out somewhere and she nailed him.

I would bet superworms have more food value than crickets, so I might use them more often. My turtles love them as well.

James,

I tried a superworm on one of my pinktoes and it was not interested either. Maybe arboreals have no clue that a superworm represents food? I mean, how many superworms climb trees? :? :?

My own experience is that arboreal tarantulas love superworms :? Perhaps your pinktoe is still small enough to be intimidated by full-sized worms, James?

Well, I guess there is no accounting for taste. :} One of my rosies showed no interest either.

they will dig for the worms....
My L parahybana just dug one up yesterday, it was fun to watch! He used his palps, and the first pair of legs, the peat moss was flying! Then he pounced like a cat.... pretty cool :)
