 Butterworms

butterworms
Young Box turtle eying butterworms

 

Butterworms are imported from Chile. In addition to their color and fruity smell, butterworms are extremely high in calcium...more than twice that of other feeder insect.

Butterworms can be stored for up 4 - 6 months in a refrigerator at 40-50 F, about 5-10 C (though  here butterworms rarely last that long)

Butterworms are an absolute favorite of box turtles
