Home grown King Worms bred in the Interior of British Columbia, and delivered fresh every week to Aquariums West.

Live food arrives every Tuesday afternoon.  For large quantities please order by Friday for pick-up on Tuesday.  We do not ship live food but you are welcome to arrange a courier to pick them up. 

King Worms are accepted by lizards, turtles, frogs, salamanders, birds, koi and other insectivorous animals. Their nutritional values are similar to those of mealworms, so it is possible that supplementation with calcium is necessary if they are used as a staple food item. In some cases they are preferred over mealworms due to their softer exoskeleton, making them more digestible to some reptiles. The larvae are odor-free (but the beetles possess a pungent chemical defense that may be released when provoked), and can be easily contained, making them ideal for raising at home to feed a collection of captive insectivores. The nutritional profile of the larvae is "46.80% proteins, 43.64% lipids, 8.17% ashes and 1.39% carbohydrates."
