Mealworms (Tenebrio Molitor) are the larvae of mealworm beetles. They have four stages of life: egg, larvae, pupa and adult beetle. Mealworms eat and grow until they have stored enough energy to transform into a pupa and then into a beetle.
Mealworms are high in protein and fat so are good for treats and building up young, sick, injured or gravid animals. Like any treat, mealworms should not be regarded as a stable food and always offered as part of a varied and well-balanced diet.
