    Default Are mealworm beetles good for eating?

    I was wondering if it was okay to feed my white's dumpy tree frog the adult form of mealworms. A few months ago I took my mealwors out of the fridge because they looked skinny and sick. After a few sliced carrots they are not much more plump and a few have pupated. Can I feed the beetles to my frog or should I save them and use them for breeding?

    Don't feed them to your frog. Their shells are too hard for your frog to digest I would imagine.

    Ok. That's what I thought. Guess I'll look into breeding the beetle instead. Thanks for replying.
