my friend gave me a silkworm and i put in on my nepenthes. It wont eat it because they only eat mullberry leaves, but its still pretty cool looking! Its cool when it just starts hanging from its silk from a leaf! it looks like its hovering! Ill get a pic of it soon!
In Reptiles Magazine there is a company who sells silkworms
Go to: www.mulberryfarms.com
They are on the pricier end of feeder insect companies though.
There are other companies who sell them too. just type in "reptile supplies" on the google search engine and anyone who sells live food has all sorts of neat insects to keep with neps including praying mantids!
ah yes, the lil silkworm. i used to rraise them as chameleon food, but now im through with lizzies and now with SNAKES! anyways, u will need to feed the lil worm with mulberry cubes or leaves. Mulbeerry farms is kinda pricey, but u do get a lot of worms buying bulk. I can easily get some worms form the SF zoo (i volunter over the summer). when i figure out how to ship em, ill send them out for the price of shiipping!
