Buy Morio Worms - Zophobas Morio - Direct from the breeder

Zophobas morio is a species of darkling beetle, whose larvae are known by as Morio worms or zophobas. Morio worms are common in the pet industry as a staple feeder insect for captive reptiles and amphibians.

These larvae resemble very large mealworms, about 1½ to 2¼ inches long. Once they reach adult size, the larvae pupate, and later emerge as large, black beetles. The larvae will not pupate if kept in a container with many other larvae, where they receive constant bodily contact.

Morio worms are readily accepted by lizards, turtles, frogs, salamanders, birds, Koi and other insectivorous animals. Their hard chitin may make them less suitable for arachnids and some predatory insects. Their nutritional values are similar to those of meal worms, so supplementation with calcium is necessary if they are used as a staple food item.

They are odor-free and can be easily contained with little to no risk of escapes, making them ideal for using at home to feed your pets.
