Sammie, my African Pygmy hedgehog, does not like this. Bought him something different to try and won't be buying this item again. Was well packaged and appeared fresh. No fault of the product. Simply didn't work for my guy. -Crystal S

I can’t give it a bad review but just my experience. My opossum made a disgusted face when she smelled these. I feel like she would love them if she tried them but for whatever reason she doesn’t want to try them. Can’t blame the silkworms, I think she is just picky. -Elizabeth W.

Hedgies love them -Errin L.

They smell disgusting (you can only smell it if you go up to it though) but my hedgie loves them. You get a lot in one can and they expire in like 7 days so I recommend freezing some of them. They aren’t in any type of liquid. -Rachelle L.
