I know you could feed flower beetle larvae to tarantulas but how about rhinoceros beetle larvae?

I would not see why you couldn't. I know my friends throws in pretty much what ever he has left over.

You can, but in my mind that would be like feeding your cat to your dog...

In a way it is, but what if you produce your own crickets and feed them to your T's? Same situation?

In some countries they are used as live food for other animals.

Just fed an L1 larvae to my GBB tarantula. Seemed to not mind it. I kind of felt bad but you have to think; if you do it with crickets or other feeders there really is no difference.

Except that it takes a heck of a lot more effort to breed rhino beetles than feeder roaches or crickets...
