Worms Alive does not breed or sell woodies, but our sister business in Queensland does!
Woodies are wood roaches (Nauphotea Cinera) and make an ideal and clean insect food for lizards, fish and frogs. Woodies are clean insects not known to carry disease organisms. In nature, they are found under dead wood or tree bark and grow to the size of a large cricket.
They are a natural and highly nutritious food and can often be used to entice fussy eaters that have gone on a hunger strike!
Woodies are suitable for feeding to the following pets:
- Lizards, including Bearded Dragons
- Frogs & Turtles
- Predatory Fish such as Large Cichlid, Barramundi and Oscars
- Insect eating birds
- Rats & Mice
