mealworms for Rankins?

Postby kevinade » Mon May 18, 2020 11:33 am

Hey rankins experts,
We 'accidentally' bought 100 mealworms for our 8 month old Rankins Dragon, who is about 8 inches long (a family member who doesn't really understand the different types of worms). From what I've read, meal worms are not great for rankins and may cause impactation. On the other hand, lots of people/care sheets refer to mealworms as staple food for Rankins dragons. These are supposedly 'large' meal worms, but about 3/4 inch long and pretty skinny. Are they ok to serve to our Rankins - we'd also be giving small crickets (1/4 - 3/8 inch) and veggies (she loves butternut squash, and has recently begun enjoying carrots).
Thanks very much for your advice!

I can help you but I have one little Rankin's and I would like to know more about him. So if you don't mind, I'll stick around for more info.
