hee, you big bunch of sillies!

if you have been feeding king mealworms, they transform into pupae that are white and wiggle if you touch them in a freaky and alarming fashion. now, your lizards will love them i mean it LOOOOVE them. they then turn into big ole black beetles (sometimes with red legs) that look quite roachlike.

my lizards catch them and munch them, but if you distress them too much they smell like antiseptic and the lizards wont go near them. mine love hunting the bugs.

money saving tip: get a plastic box and put in a bit of cork bark and a screwed up piece of wet tissue (to keep them alive) and shove all the bugs in it (with a lid). they will lay eggs int the corkbark and in a few weeks you will have lots of baby king mealies.

if you dont want your worms to pupate, just put them in the fridge. it doesnt kill them but slows the metabolism and so they stay in the larval stage longer.

best wishes guys.
Rachie.
