Morio Worms (Zoophobas morio), also sometimes called giant or king mealworms are a larger cousin of the mealworm with many similarities. They have a high nutritional content, a long shelf life (if kept cool) and a high fat content perfect for putting a bit of extra weight onto young animals or egg laying adults. Their larger size makes them perfect for medium and large lizard species; they are particularly relished by adult bearded dragons and blue tongue skinks.
