hi,
well earth worms are fine to feed them but I wouldnt prefer feeding them the whole worm cause it can get pretty hard for them cause when I feed my newt whole worms the worm would always end up crawling back out of the mouth but it would be fine if you cut them up.....you should also feed them at least 3 of the cut up worms (try to cut the worms into inch halves)
.................well I hope I answered your question GoOd LuCkClick the image to open in full size.

It really depends on how old and how large the sal is (and how large the worms are!). For a juvenile, I would say every day as much as it wants. For an adult, every 2-3 days, as much as it wants. For an obese adult, less than it wants! For just one sal, I don't think you'll need more than one worm per feeding, unless the worms are small or the sal is really big.

My juvenile fire sals (about 5 inches long) get about an inch to two inches of earthworm every other day. They are growing well and putting on weight.

There is nothing wrong with feeding whole worms to your animals as long as they're suitably sized....it's fine to cut them up however if you need too.
