Default meal worms

A lot of pet stores have their mealworms in some kind of saw dust. Does anyone know if the worms are kept in oatmeal, is that ok to give the hedgies. I don't want to give her anything that will upset her tummy.

Oatmeal or bran are fine - I would move them from the sawdust. Just doesn't seem like a good idea, somehow??

I think most people just pick the mealies out of the bedding when they're feeding them so they would be passing on very little bedding/cereal/whatever. I use tweezers (cuz I can't stand touching the little freakoids ) but I don't feed them to Snarf with tweezers. He lunges with too much 'enthusiasm' and I don't want to poke his eye out. I just put the mealie down in front of him and try to get him to notice it.

I usually dump my mealies in a bigger container with some crumbled fiber cereal that hedgie-daddy refuses to eat. And I will keep some fresh arrot, potato or apple in there too.

I hope you do tell hedgie-daddy that you put the mealies with his cereal -- what if he decides to eat it? Just kidding.

Well, then I guess he would be getting fiber & protein!

Default Re: meal worms

An hour ago Jamie (BF) was 're-homing' the mealworm aliens and beetles into separate containers and was asking what to use for bedding. The look on his face when I pointed to the bran in the fridge...he said verrrry slowly...what do you use when you make those raisin bran muffins...I just smiled and shrugged...he's still not sure what the 'secret' in my recipe is.
