While there is no official evidence of it happening; in 2012 it is rumored that a Superworm was found in the cage with a dead bearded dragon with a hole in its side. Later the person admitted that the dragon had probably been dead a while and that the worm was trying to get 'in' rather than out. It has never been proven that the dragon died from the Superworm and we have never heard another report of anything similar before or after. Leopard geckos not only chew up their food rather well but if you put a Superworm in a cup of water you'll find they don't live very long in moisture and without oxygen. In the wild Leopard geckos eat lizards, ants, beetles, and even scorpions, spiders, and centipedes. They will even eat small rodents in the wild! So we'll leave the final decision up to you, but our customers including most large-scale breeders feed our Superworms heads and all with no problems reported.
