 Night crawlers

has anyone ever fed their WD night crawlers? they had some at the pet store, but they were packed in earth...HUGE worms...does anyone know if soil has parasites in it that would harm the WD? has anyone ever fed regular worms to their WD?

I feed 2 a day 6 days a week. I buy them at the bait store. Been doing it for about 5 months now. Bilbo loves them!!!! They are very nutritious for them too. Much more then crickets. I spray them with a calcium spray everytime. Every other time I roll them in crushed vitamins.

I feed them to my three every day, they love them my male is larger and can eat them whole but for my girls I just by regular trout worms from the bait store. They are small and eaiser for the girls to eat. When they dont have the trout worms I just cut the night crawlers down in size

I also feed Euro worms (a type of earthworm that can be kept at room temps). They are very good for CWD and have no exoskeleton to worry about. I did see something on a TV show about bait store worms containing parasites, but I never was able to verify if this is true or not. I still feed them to my 3.:)
