Buffalo worms are the larvae of a small beetle and are about 1cm long. They are suitable for many species that like smaller food and are often used for birds.

They are similar in use as other "mealworm" types of insect but these have a thinner exoskeleton and are softer and easier to eat. They don't like being chilled very much and are kept more like Morio than normal mealworms. Faster moving and more active than mealworms they will quickly bury and hide way so need to be fed in a dish. They are high in protein, low in fat, low in carbohydrates and are packed with essential minerals like copper, iron, magnesium, riboflavin and zinc.
