: : When I first offered my Foster a meal worm, he grabbed it excitedly, bit the head off, and when it stopped wiggling he didn't want it anymore. He hasn't touched them since.
: : Kim
: You may want to try again. I bought a pair of gliders that were two and a half years old. They had never seen a meal worm. It took the male 3 days to LIKE them. The female would not take one for 2 weeks. Then, my daughter (then 7) walked up and said in her squeaky high pitched voice "Here Cutie . . . I have a yummie meal worm for you". Do you know she dashed over and snatched that meal worm and zealously ate it? Her name has been "Cutie" ever since (they were never given a name prior to my buying them, too sad). And Kim, she adores meal worms now. All of my gliders act like P.O.W.s when I feed meal worms.
: Unless YOU can't get yourself to touch them????
