Mealworms Are a Great Source of Nutrients for Your Reptile

Bulk Crickets and Worms

Mealworms, a beetle larva, are extremely high in protein and a great food staple for your pet lizard. Mealworms begin as eggs that hatch into very small worms. These little worms eat non-stop until they get too big for their exoskeletons, which are shed. For a few days the mealworm is "naked" and creamy white – waiting for its new exoskeleton. This process can happen up to twenty times as the mealworm is growing! Once the worm grows to just under an inch it will go into the pupal phase waiting to become a beetle.
