Morio Worms make an ideal livefood for reptiles birds and other animals for several good reasons. They’re high in fat and perfectly nutritious for a start, especially when gut-loaded and dusted. Secondly, they’re relatively cheap, as is witnessed by the fact that several large-scale lizard producers feed their livestock primarily with high quality fresh mealworms. And finally, they’re slow moving and won’t jump around out of reach like a cricket or locust will.
When Morio Worms are placed in a bowl with a good quality dusting powder, animals are more likely to get a good dose of vitamins and minerals – unlike crickets and locusts which can shake off much of the powder they are dusted with before they are eaten.
