Well last night I decided since i have tried other insects id like to try my hand on a Beetle, never had one before. I was on Bugsincyberspace just looking around on the site. When i spotted an adorable adult Gymnetis caseyi for sale, I like sometimes the bigger ones as I have tremors and like to hold my insects frequently. Already I have named it Bumblebee (from Transformers).

Welcome!

 

There's a joke that circulates around the insect hobby in many variations:

 

 

 

"Hm, cool, a harlequin flower scarab. Might get one or two."

 

Half a year later, you have thirty species...

 

 

 

...in your bedroom alone, and let's not mention the closet ;)

Welcome! To find adults youd have to wait for summer, but larvae can be found in tree holes in trees, theyre young L3s right now and will probably pupate in the fall.

Oh, and don't forget that Dynastes species are not found wild in all parts of the USA. Bugsincyberspace sells adults now and then.
