The variety of natural colors are eye-catching to all animals and the great taste will keep them coming back for more! Calci-Worms are naturally sun-dried to maintain their nutritional value and store for a year or longer. No refrigeration necessary! Excellent source of protein & suitable for sugar gliders, hedgehogs, squirrels, skunks, opossums, wild birds, chickens, turtles, tropical fish, reptiles and other insect eating animals.
Great with foraging toys!!!!
Importance of Calcium: Most sugar glider owners know the goal in a diet is to achieve a calcium to phosphorus ratio over 1, meaning more calcium than phosphorus in the diet. Unlike mealworms, crickets, superworms, etc., Calci-Worms have a ratio of 1.52. Calcium deficiency is one of the most common problems of sugar gliders. 'Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathyroidism' (NSHP, or metabolic bone disease) occurs when a sugar glider's diet has too little calcium or has too much phosphorus. These black soldier fly larvae have a Calcium levels of 8155ppm (mealworms have a Calcium ppm of only 133). Calci-Worms are also high in protein to support strong and healthy growth!
Feeding Recomendation: Calci-Worms can be offered straight or mixed with other foods to make a custom blend. Treats are recommended to make up no more than 10% of the regular diet.
