Tenebrio Molitor species
100gm mini Mealworms. Packed in a plastic tub with bran, paper and carrot.

OTHER MEALWORM SIZES:
Regular mealworms and Superworms (although these are a different species)
Mealworms are easy to keep in a plastic container with small holes. We ship them to you with bran, which they use for bedding and food.
They are best kept in the fridge and will live happily there for a number of weeks. They slow down considerably when kept in the fridge, but still need to be fed. About every two weeks add a few small pieces of carrot which they will eat and use as a source of moisture.
If left out of the fridge the worms will begin to pupate and are much less palatable.
Mealworms should be considered a "treat food" as they are high in fat and have a hard exoskeleton that can cause issues with some animals. They are a good addition as part of a well-balanced diet.
WHO LOVES OUR MEALWORMS?
Mealworms are a great food for lizards and are a favourite of Bearded Dragons, frogs, turtles and amphibians, fish, birds including insectivores, magpies, finches and chooks will love you for them too.
TRIED THOSE, WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU GOT?
If you want to vary the diet of your beloved critter you might want to try some Black Soldier Fly Larvae, crickets, superworms or silkworms. A little of this and a little of that keep your pet interested and offer different hunting opportunities to keep them stimulated.
Very good quality, great feeders, the animals love them!
