Goth Wormz - Taking The Feeder Insect Industry By Storm!


aAs we continue to grow our business extremely rapidly we have made the decision to temporarily hault Goth Wormz as of 8/8/23 . We are currently experiencing issues with growth and development and don't have the time and manpower to dive into the project as we would like. In the meantime we will continue research and development and experiment with mass rearing techniques. I say the Tacco Bell Dorito tacco took 4 years to develop and it was worth the wait! Ontop of that they are a multi billion dollar company and we are not (yet). So thank you for everyone who has shown interest in the project. We love your support. I will try to write an extremely detailed blog post in the near future that details everything so people are not in the dark.

Yes! The spikes on the body of the  Goth Wormz®  might look sharp, but they are in fact soft and fleshy and will not harm your reptiles at all.
