Hello, BeetleForum! Travis here, from Las Vegas, NV, US. I raised darklings as a kid, and my own daughter gaining some interest has breathed new life into my own. I've always loved rhinos and stags, but never really realized that they could be kept until recently, so here I am!
My daughter and I have started a colony of superworms, just like I did when I was her age, and they're already molting like crazy. She's having a lot of fun checking on them and hopefully learning some patience and diligence along the way (not that they take a whole lot of diligence to raise). We have an agreement that if she does well here we can start looking at some rhinos for her, though realistically she's helping me with mine already.
As for my own beetles: with some help and a ton of patience from Peter over at bugsincyberspace.com, I've gotten my supplies together and my first group of grubs growing all fat and happy. (2) D. granti and (2) enormous M. punctulatus.
I also have (1) male (profile picture) and (4) female adult D. tityus as of just yesterday, hoping to experiencing mating and some ova, which I'm more excited about than I feel like a 31-year-old man should be.
I have a lot of learning to do, and I'm looking forward to doing it.
