What are mealworms?

Mealworms are the larval stage of Tenebrio molitor, a type of darkling beetle. These little "worms" have been popular feeders for decades, and can be offered as part of a varied diet to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, skinks, frogs, tarantulas, scorpions, birds, and other exotic pets!

Our pre-cupped option is great for hobbyists that want a convenient alternative to "boxed" or "bagged" feeders, and pet stores or resellers wanting a professional pre-packaged solution.

Each small mealworm is approximately 1/2" long.

How often should mealworms be offered?

Mealworms can be used as a regular part of your pet's diet, preferably as part of a rotation with at least two other types of "staple" feeder insects.

Great product

I ordered these for my moms lizard when ordering for my dragon and they are honestly a great deal and great quality. We did have the issue that they went into "sleep" mode along with our other bugs but that's because it was 20 degrees outside lol. Will continue to order
