False - our vet has yet to come across a case where a reptile has had its intestines damaged by any of those larvae. The jaw power of your dragon alone will kill it and the stomach acids wouldn't have it feeling very healthy either!

As Rick said you wont need to do it to Morio's, Silkworms or Waxworms..

It is recommended with the Pachnoda Grubs though if you ever decide to try those as a treat. They have very sharp pincers and could potentially cause trouble - http://www.livefoodsdirect.co.uk/.Pachn ... PN1TUB.htm
