What is a Swell Live Morio Mealworms Pre-Pack?
Swell Live Morio Mealworms Pre-Packs are packages, sometimes called a day pack, of live Morio mealworms that have been specifically bred to offer a healthy and nutritious meal for lizard setups and snake setups. Morio mealworms are giant Mealworms perfect for larger lizards, such as a Bearded dragon, or birds.
The live Mealworms provide much-needed protein for growth and development. Each plastic container contains 50g of farm-bred Morio worms that are ideal as an occasional treat for most exotic animals.
Are Morio worms the same as Mealworms?
Morio worms, sometimes called giant Mealworms or scientifically Zophobas morio, are a different species from standard live Mealworms, scientifically called Tenebrio monitor. The two species both change into species of Darkling beetles during their lifecycles.
Just like live mealworms, your Morio mealworms can be pre-fed nutrients in a process called gut loading. Standard gut-loaded Morio worms guarantee freshness and make a great feed for reptiles, amphibians and birds.
How long do Morio worms last?
Morio Mealworms will be delivered straight to you and should be good for a few weeks before changing into beetles at room temperature. However, you can slow the development of the larvae significantly by keeping them at a cooler temperature and packing them in tightly with other Morio worms.
Do Morio worms eat mealworms?
No, Morio worms are of a similar species to mealworms and the two do not prey upon each other. You should be fine to keep both species together in the same enclosure.
Do Morio worms turn into anything?
Yes, Morio worms are able to pupate and metamorphosis, changing into a Darkling beetle. These beetles can still be used as an exotic animal feed in a pinch, however, they are quite tough to chew and might not be accepted by picky eaters.
