Re: Meal worms and white worms
Meal worms are a bit "crusty" and they are high in fat and low in calcium. An axolotl could probably survive on them for a time, but they aren't a food I would recommend.

Whiteworms are easy to grow, but they would be a bit too small for an adult axie (unless you have some sort of white worms that are different from the ones I know about).

How about a good quality pellet food for carnivores?

Hi Sara,

If I can just add, if you do feed an axolotl mealworms ensure you decapitate the mealworm as it has strong mandibles that can tear through the axolotl's internals.
