Meal Worms
Is it okay to give freeze dried meal worms, or do they have to be alive?

Re: Meal Worms
There's a couple threads floating around here that give arguments for both sides, but the consensus is that both are perfectly acceptable :-)

Oh wow that poor baby! How sad :cry:

Does this change the consensus of freeze dried being ok? Or is it more of a WITHIN MODERATION idea, as with all treats?

Personally, I feed my guys live ones, just because they're more easily accessible and I think it's hilarious watching my husband get grossed out trying to feed them :twisted:

That's a perfect example of only being able to learn by living and a serious effort to save many hedgie owners some heartache. Thanks for the post, Nancy!
