they tend not too as are not usually kept correctly...i have some super mealworms that decided to create a whole colony in my cham tank though..but the beetles just don't get eaten!
don't think the odd one would hurt.
They seem to thrive in my tegu viv as well - and the poor thing cant stand to be near them! I think they must know this :lol: To be fair though theres only been a couple - he usually snaffles them up too quickly as larvae for them to survive.
worst ones for that are flour beetles...those things will infest cupboards! and they have a thing for cork bark too....
but i must say one good thing about mealworms they are damn good at eating poo...actually tried to start other colonies in some of my other vivs(for some reason it didn't work!) because they eat all waste from the chams...very handy.... (this was super mealworms though or zophobas morio for those technical types they don't infest things as they are very cannibilistic.)
hmm yeh none of our reps show anythingt buf fear when shown one...i dont like them either lol.
I did hear on this forum a while back that thery are actually very bad to feed but cannot source it.
I have very few turn into them with the morio but with normal mealworms it happens a lot...I feed the beardies and savvy the cacconned up thingys though...they love them...all mushy... keeps them from geting to turning into beetles.
