The product which is being offered here is the high-quality live Mealworms (Tenebrio Molitor). These are the larval form of the mealworm beetle, Tenebrio Molitor, a species of darkling beetle. Like all holometabolic insects, they go through four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Larvae typically measure about 2.5 cm or more, whereas adults are generally between 1.25 and 1.8 cm in length.
Our Mealworms are a great treat in a birds, reptile or amphibians diet. They are very high in protein, quite high in fat and make a hearty meal so we would recommend them once maybe twice a week in addition to the main insect diet. Our mealworms are dispatched direct from the breeder and will be gut loaded before packing to make sure that they are as nutritious as possible on arrival.
