Morning! i dont have Frillies, however I thought it was the case with most reps that Mealworms shouldnt be fed as a staple diet only ever now and again.

I may be wrong (normally am lol)

cons to mealies_
harder to digest
a bit fattening

fixes to cons_
nice warm bask
a varied diet.

if you go on an approx equation of 5 crix to every mealworm, your bask is nice and warm and the frillys are active, shitting ok, and not fat then your good to keep mealworms a REGULAR part of the diet.


EDIT- mealworms have a little less protien than crix also, keeping all your live food well gutloaded kinda makes this not too much a worry anyway though, also just dust the mealworms a little heavier than the crix if this is a concern.

For advice on dusting/supplementation see any beardie diet related thread as care in this respect is similar.
