Giant Mealworms as Reptile Food

Our giant mealworms are a great treat in a 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 giant 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.

Giant mealworms are the perfect size for bearded dragons, water dragons, basilisk, iguana, turtles, monitor lizards and chameleons. In store we use them as an occasional treat for our larger lizards and turtles.

This product will be delivered in a white plastic weave bag with some insulation inside, the insulation is usually bran based or light paper depending on the weather. The insulation cushions some of the movement in transit and allows movement within the bag.The plastic mesh bag allows air in and out of the bag while keeping the risk of escape low. During the summer months the outer cardboard box may also include perforations to keep them cool while in colder months we may include a plain white heatpack.

You'll love them because:
  • We guarantee freshness or your money back
  • They are farm bred in ethical conditions.
  • They are pre-fed to ensure your reptile is getting a healthy and nutritious meal.
  • Delivered straight to your door in good time.
We recommend giant mealworms for the following animal types:
  • Bearded dragons
  • Monitor lizards
  • Turtles
  • Iguanas
  • Water dragons

Each order of livefood will also come with a free ProRep Jelly pot. The mealworms can last quite a while without food but will dehydrate within a week without a source of hydration. We have found that they don't do very well with open bodies of water so the jelly pot is an effective alternative. Simply put the jelly pot into your tub after a day or two of receiving the item.

If you want to keep the giant mealworms as nutritious as possible we would recommend you continue to feed them on a nutritious vegetable diet or with insect foods. For more information on the diet please consult our livefood caresheet.
