I just bought some meal worms from Petsmart today for $2.99, and thought it would be a good treat for my Eastern Painted turtles. I fed a coulple of them today, and they ate them up fast, the ones they didnt eat my Koi ate. Is this an OK thing to feed them? Please let me know, cause I have never heard of them eating this.

They`re Ok (not as a staple), but they are difficult to digest (mealworms have a thick casing), so it`s not good to feed them a lot at one time.
