Mealworms are not really worms at all. They're the larvae of the T. molitor species darkling beetle (an insect). The darkling beetle undergoes a complete metamorphosis (egg, larvae, pupa, and beetle). It's the 2nd stage of metamorphosis (the larvae) that is referred to as the "mealworm".
Mealworms are the most popular feeder insect available today. Their high moisture, low fat, high protein, and high nutrient composition makes mealworms the perfect dietary supplement for a wide range of animals (including humans). From poultry farmers to reptile and amphibian enthusiast, mealworms add variety and nutrition to your animal's diet.
