1Lbs Chubby Dried Silkworm Pupae
Dried Silkworm Pupae are a 100% natural, high quality, high protein nutritional crunchy treat that can be fed to many animals including wild birds, hedgehogs, turtles, koi and other fish and many reptiles. As well as being naturally high in protein they also have high levels of calcium, nutrients, vitamins and minerals and other essential fatty acids.
We often find that animals can take a while to get used to this new taste. Why not try to crush or grind our Silkworm Pupae into dust to make a high protein supplement that can be added to their normal food? They can also be soaked in warm water for around 20-30 minutes to rehydrate them and make them easier to eat.
Silkworm pupae have been said to be especially beneficial in the growth and colour enhancement of Koi Carp. They also provide better slime coat protection to resist parasite and bacterial infections resulting in better, bigger, healthier fish.
Reptile expert, A. Lanois, says that silkworms are, "naturally the healthiest insect you can get" because of their nutritional value and low-fat content.

I was very pleased with both the dried mealworms and silkworm pupae I purchased. They arrived quickly and in good condition. I ordered the smallest amount as a 'test' and will definitely reorder from Chubby in the future.
The birds love them ... I hide a few throughout the feeder as surprise treats.
The only downside was the unexpected smell of the silkworm pupae.
