    Question??

    What the hell is this thing? This has been sitting in one of the tanks I keep an Avic in and it just wiggles it's tail once in a while. It's been alive for like 4 weeks now with no water or food and when you move it, the nasty little thing just wiggles it's tail back and forth. I think it's a roach but not sure and if it is why is it not doing anything? http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id...334150&theater

    i assume it's the last picture in the set/album?

    i'm not that savvy on my insect larva, but it looks like some sort of beetle larva.

    it's a pupae for either a superworm or a meal worm it'll turn into a little black beetle that wont be good for feeding reptiles or inverts or anything like that but if you wanna let some grow up in a oatmeal substrate you can' start your own meal worm colony like i used to have

    Yeah. Before MHBC I was running Mile High Bugs and doing all sorts of feeder insects. HATED. IT. I actually know what darkling beetle pupa looks like because in, like, 2nd grade, we all took mealworms home to grow them into beetles. And it's haunted me since.
