I personally think, if theres so many more nutritional bugs out there, then why bother with meal worms? They aren't super good to use so I wouldnt even use them. Just adding to the conversation btw not trying to argue.
Hi there... Soil looks a bit moist.. You want to make sure you have a drainage layer and it is fully bioactive. Otherwise it is just a breeding ground for bacteria.Update: He is eating like a champ, he mostly wears dark colors unless sleeping, hopefully he's just still acclimating to going from the yard to an enclosure...
Can anyone tell me are these white markings normal?
Also, are the feces normal looking?
I agree with you
I'm not going to argue with you. Have a nice daySo what's your experiences that you all came to these conclusions? Other than someone said it one time.
There are articles that show mealworms to rival other feeders in nutrition. I could link them, but they've been posted here on several occasions already.
I think the main point/reason is availability; they're almost always available locally and immediately. If one has quick access to a variety of feeders, that's—of course—preferable. OTOH, if one has to wait several days for better feeders to be shipped (in these uncertain times) my feeling has always been, if faced with feeding mealies or nothing, I choose to feed mealies (or whatever else may not be first choice, but I can get them today).I personally think, if theres so many more nutritional bugs out there, then why bother with meal worms?
