Default Re: Insects as animal proteins

Calciworms are safe. I feed them myself. Silkworms are also ok, and waxworms.

I've never tried Syrians with grasshoppers or crickets, whether live or dried. My dwarf hamsters have liked dried grasshoppers. I suppose it depends on whether your Syrian likes insects at all as some do, some really don't.

Hamsters seem to find mealworms particularly delicious. I use calciworms as the protein in my main mixes because they provide a lot of calcium, and use mealworms as treats. Fresh waxworms also seem very popular.
