I recently bought a water dragon aka chinese water dragon. I was wondering if its alright to feed her mealworms instead of crickets?

Mealworms are an ok food for water dragons. However, diversity is always best so if you could also feed crickets it would give better overall nutrition.

Mealworms many reptiles are really good food sources. If you have reptiles, I suggest you feed them with mealworms.

The outer shell (exoskeleton) of a meal worm is sometimes hard for lizards to digest. Feed Water dragons a variety of gut-loaded insects such as crickets, king mealworms, silkworms, and waxworms, as well as grasshoppers, roaches, and earthworms. Pinky mice and small fish may also be fed occasionally. All produce offered should be fresh, high quality items fit for human consumption and pesticide free.
