Hi there Backwater team, the silkworms are so great, I let some grow larger, and some I feed right away. My lizards and frogs devour them!

We have succulent and nutritious silkworms for sale at excellent pricing. Full grown adults can each three inches in length!

They are relished by both reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. We offer medium (around 1.5"), and large (full grown) sizes. We also have silkworm chow, which you can peruse using the drop-down menu below. When you buy Silkworms from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee.

Live Feeder Silkworm Sizes
Our Silkworms for sale are available in two different succulent sizes: medium (approximately 1.5 inches), and large (full grown). This makes them appropriate for something as small as an anole, or as large as an adult bearded dragon or big chameleon. They cannot bite, and are slow moving, so there is no risk they will attack your animals.

Why Buy Silkworms in Bulk?
Silkworms are very rarely offered for sale in pet stores or even online, which is unfortunate due to their high nutritional value and docile nature. They contain high amounts of iron, magnesium, calcium, protein, and vitamin B.

USPS 2-3 day shipping is free, regardless of the number of silkworms you buy. Please peruse our
shipping information page before ordering. Feeder orders placed Monday ship on Tuesday, and orders placed Tuesday through Sunday ship the following Monday for the safety of the insects. Sorry, we do not ship internationally (U.S. only).

This is strictly for the safety of the insects, and you will be notified by e-mail if this does occur.

We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and Paypal. We do not accept checks, money orders, or cashier's checks.

Our terms and conditions apply to all orders.

  • Why buy reptiles?

    We offer exotic reptiles for sale online at absolute rock-bottom prices, which means we make these fascinating animals available to you affordably as pets, or even to start your own reptile breeding project. We are reptile enthusiasts who believe captive breeding is integral to the future of the market, as it not only helps protect wild herp populations, but is an incredibly rewarding experience that tends to intensify one's passion for these amazing prehistoric creatures. Whether you buy a snake, lizard, turtle, tortoise, or alligator, we are driven to provide the highest quality live reptiles for sale.

  • Why buy amphibians?

    Amphibians are generally slower-moving, and have uniquely moist skin which means they are never far from a source of water. Their life cycle is nothing short of incredible: they hatch in water, spend weeks or months in metamorphosis, then become either terrestrial or remain primarily water bound. Some salamanders even breathe through their skin! Our live amphibians for sale online include frogs, toads, salamanders, and newts. Some are huge, some are small, and virtually all are amazing to observe in captivity. When you buy amphibians from us, you can rest assured they are fully guaranteed to arrive alive and in great condition. Why not start an amphibian breeding project today?

  • Why buy feeder insects?

    Reptile and amphibian food should be varied, which is why we offer an array of feeder insects for sale. It's always far more cost effective to buy feeder insects in bulk, which often saves up to 70% off pet store prices. Plus, the feeders are delivered right to your doorstep. We offer live crickets for sale, as well as mealworms, wax worms, nightcrawlers, and now even lizards, all at the lowest possible prices. Our reptile and amphibian feeder insects and lizards include a guarantee of live arrival.
