Do they have very different nutrition values and which is better?
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. my cane toad eat both normal mealie beetles and morio beetles. tasty
my Fire bellied toads never eat the darkling beetle, though they are a different sp and i would think alot smaller then the colorado river toad...Not much turns off toads. I had a recently collected colorodo river toad (Bufo alavarius) defecate in temporary holding containers, and the feces was full of the elytra of Eleodes sp. darkling beetles. These beeles are sometimes known as "desert skunk beetles" due to the powerful odor of the defensive chemicals, but the toads are apparently not bothered.
something fairly critical to bear in mind is that we do not actually know the dietary requirements of tarantulas... so everything you hear about high this is good or low that is bad or whatever is most likely speculationis somebody able to tell me about the fat content of mealworms? i read a thread talking about that mealworms had a high fat content and that it was unhealthy for tarantulas on a consistent basis. i feed mealworms to all of my Ts and am in the process starting a roach colony. some help will be greatly appreciated.
