We ordered worms and crickets for Moshe, and I ordered a little package of butter worms on a whim. I thought it might be nice to get him a treat, not that we would know if it WAS a treat, since we don't speak lizard. And he doesn't speak, period.

The package arrived, and inside was this little ball, about the size of an egg, which was heaving a little. I poked at it with tweezers and discovered it was full of the worms, they had spun silk and wadded up all their packing material in it to make a giant cocoon-like nest.

The worms are really pretty, sort of a rosy peachy color with a dark head. Moshe likes them, and he doesn't appear to care what color they are.

I'd been afraid that they would be too big for him, but so far it hasn't been a problem. We may have to make a little dolly so he can haul his tail around, the way he's been eating lately.
