      Superworms or mealworms? What’s the difference?

      Superworms? mealworms? Tan crawlies? What’s the difference?

      Both feeder insects come from the dame darkling beetle family. But although they are related, they are not the same, and will not supply the same nutrients for your pet.

      Most reptiles have specific fat and protein requirements from the food they eat. And superworms meet those needs much more than mealworms. Superworms also have a much better calcium-to-phosphorus ratio. But, they will still need to be dusted with calcium powder.
