|Brooke Lancelot||Oh great, thanks! My worms usually pupate when they're light, so this is the first time I've seen an older mealworm. Never too old to learn something new huh 😄|

|Aj.t||It looks to me like an old mealie. Super worms tend to be wider than that, this one is still pretty “lanky” just looks stretched out almost|

|Kalandra||Hard to tell from the pic, but it could simply be an older mealworm. I have some in my colony that are large and darker in color than the others. Nothing wrong with feeding them. I don't usually feed them, as I'd prefer to give two small ones instead of 1 large worm.|

Uh... What's this?
Ok, so, today I bought my boy more mealworms, cause, uh, I ran out, and I just went to give him his daily dose of worms, but I caught this guy instead... Now its obvious its not a normal mealworm, since the guy next to him, is an ordinary one I grew to know...
Could this be a superworm that got mixed into the mealworms? Is this a worm on steroids?
Its noticeably alot darker and bigger than a mealworm, and I'm scared to feed it to Igor, since I know superworms can bite. So, I'm asking of anyone knows if this is a normal mutanized mealie, or is it a superworm or some other species?
- the light one is the normal mealie,
- the dark one is the weird guy
