Black soldier fly larvae are considered the best new alternative for incorporating calcium and protein into an animal's diet. The variety of natural colors are eye-catching to all animals and the great taste will keep them coming back for more! Calci-Yum 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.

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-Yum Worms have a ratio of 1.52 (view nutritional comparison chart in additional photos). Calcium deficiency is one of the most common problems of sugar gliders. 'Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathyroidism' (NSHP = 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 ppm of 8155 (mealworms have a Calcium ppm of only 133). Calci-Worms are also high in protein to support strong and healthy growth!

Healthy treats have several benefits for both pets and pet owners. Treats can lend variety to an otherwise monotonous diet, provide good exercise for teeth and jaws, and add behavioral enrichment for animals that spend their lives in a small, limited environment. Most importantly, treats form a connection between pets and pet owners, assisting in bonding and training.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATION: This product is a treat and should be fed sparingly, it is not a substitute for a regular, balanced diet. Offer treats 2-3 times per week or as a small portion (less than 10%) of the main diet. Treats may lead to health issues like obesity when overfed. If your pet is not consuming its regular balanced diet, withhold serving treats until stable eating habits resume.

My gliders spit these out immediately like trash! -Jennifer K. H.

My sugar glider goes nuts for these. They do smell a little, but not too bad. When I open the bag of these worms she will stop what she is doing and RUN to come get them. I love that she likes them AND they are healthy. -Stacey D.
