You can go ahead and check, they probably will if they carry fishing rods and such! Check for a fridge, they'll be in little white styrofoam boxes. If it looks fuzzy..or has a bad smell, they are dead worms, put 'em down! But if you see one that looks good and doesn't smell, go ahead and poke at one with the lid, it'll wiggle and you'll know it's alive! :) We have two frogs in our house who eat earthworms so we buy a lot of worms at a time and put them in a large styrofoam cooler with food so they will live longer and we have to go to the store less often. Though no one HAS to do that..just makes it less of a pain, lol!

If you want, go ahead and call the store and see if they carry earthworms/nightcrawlers! :) Though a pacman frog wouldn't be able to eat these for a few months!

Yeah, I just mentioned it because some people will get confused "they didn't have earthworms! They only had nightcrawlers!" lol!

Now..red wigglers I wouldn't get. They release a nasty toxin which may or may not hurt frogs, but the frog for sure doesn't like it! They will spit those out!

Great pictures of all your babies!! And I love love love Guacomole.

Thanks for sharing these. They sure made me smile :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Amazing little ones you have there! So beautiful! My 7 year old was excited to see the pictures, she is very much into reptiles. If I decide to allow her a reptile pet one day, I'll have to ask you for some info!

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!

I love Bubba's smile! He's got the best little grin permanently smacked on that face!

Thanks guys!! C:


Myates: That's awesome! I think it's great so many young kids are being educated in reptiles and not just falling for the typical "it's slimy, kill it!" mentality I see with so many adults. They are great fun as pets, and wonderful wild neighbors in a yard :) Our wild geckos eat all the bugs and mosquitos that would bite us! We provide them with food(by attracting bugs with our lights) and they provide us with a break from the buggies and we get to watch their entertaining antics!

I bet you would of loved to of been in my apt when I found a random snake curled up on my fridge this summer! Not something one expects to find when living in Alaska....The guy who picked it up said it was a ball python but most people on forums told me it was a mexican rat snake? In the right light, it was metallic gold.

WHen I first moved in, there was a girl that lived here that had two HUGE snakes. Not only where they several feet long but they were fat.
