    Which would you choose?

    male size 100mm & undetermined female sizedepend on general wc size/$500 a pair is the cheapest price $3,000 is fair price for a pair of male size 150mm & female medium to large size Compair to a pair of WC 100mm Dorcus alcides price $6,000 in Japan

    Which would you choose?

    Have you ever thinking about taking a trip and collect some wild ones It would be a trip to remember and really healthy beetle as well theory is they should produce up to 100+ healthy eggs

    Which would you choose?

    If i didn't have to travel & move so much/moved 23 times and counting i would go to Dhh native wild location & collect 10 adult pairs and go back collect some more every few years or so That is if you really into this species

    Which would you choose?

    But smaller one may indicate health issue

    Which would you choose?

    Yes i will. Thanks Bigger beetle is just higher % chance of big beetle that is all
  14. stagtacus

    Which would you choose?

    It seems the larger the beetle the higher the chance of curved horn but there are ways to decrease the risk im not specialized in rhinoceros beetles What i can do is offer you phone assistance if need to when im in taiwan Or we can trade for things

    Which would you choose?

    Which would you choose?

    i know someone who have nice Dhl bloodline 160mm protential, maybe we can work something out if you interested

    Which would you choose?

    My own Opinion key word ( Opinion ) #1 NO BROKEN LEGS #2 NO curved horn #3 NO swallow tail wings According to a taiwanese D breeder male size 130mm & female size 65mm is minimum, if one should choose to breed/offspring theory size 150mm & up For offspring 160mm & up/you may need male size of 160mm & female size 70mm or larger for better % chance Personally i would prefer WILD collected beetle for sure !! You seems very enthusiastic about beetles so why not go BIG !!! and take it to the next BEECULES level Maybe a health, well porportion, huge beetle is on the horizon 175mm !!

    Anyone else feel this way?

    TV offers no true knowledge but the wild offers true treasures ssh do not tell the others Now go out & find your Treasures ! & stop watching TV / Beware of ticks & stay safe !! i do not find exciting things boring i just find the boring things are much more exciting

    Price Of Beetles

    Thank you guys for the wonderful comment, but i have not make up my mind yet. As for the china trip it's not as expansive as it sound, because i go to asia from time to time anyway, that is the reason why i did not include airfare as an expense and i could just hire one person instead of two. But the good news is that i could almost have complete control on ( Dorcus hopei hopei & other species found in china, like Dorcus grandis grandis ) down to the area, since i will be the person who is actually doing the collecting. i agree the Dhh post is humorous
