Can O' Worms are retorted (cooked in the can) mealworms. This unique cooking process locks in the flavor and freshness. The exoskeleton is softened for easier digestibility. You will be amazed how readily your animals will take to this food.
Somehow, the worms are cooked just right so they are soft and lifelike, without being wet, or mushy, or slimy.
I don't know how they do it, but they're perfect for our box turtle.
The can makes them look larger than the actual product- they're not big fat mealworms, but you've got a can full of them, so you can just feed more.
