Default Re: Waxworms biting?

I have heard the stories time and again with mealworms superworms and some other feeders biting the insides of our herps/amphibs and find it to be a lot of hooie honestly. If a feeder insect can survive the trip thru the mouth let alone the stomach acids to bite our animals then they're superbug imo. Wax worms are delicate feeders wtih no shell that are damaged/killed easily. I really don't think there's a need to squish it's head to help protect your amphib. My mediterrenean gecko which is like 3-ish inches long eats adult waxies no problem, so does my adult leopard gecko.
