    GIRL Skateboards Typo

    GIRL is the skateboard company name. Can’t really blame em, but if you’re gonna be putting this idea out you might as well do the research first. Sick skateboards and concept, just wish the beetles were identified right! Woulda bought the whole series lol.

    Favorite animal and why?

    Growing up, we all had our favorite animal. My favorite animal was always a rat but my mom never let me have one. She thought they were gross creatures. I obsessed over rats, even wearing a belt as a tail some days. Sounds funny but it's true. After many years later, I got my first rat and named her Britney. She was the most smart and loving pet that I've ever had. I even got my mom to like her! She said hi to Britney every day and held her. However, Britney became sick with a respiratory infection and had a few tumors so I had to put her down. To this day, rats still remain my favorite animal. Which animal is your favorite and why?

    Giant Diving Beetle (Cybister sp.)

    Beaut! Found one at my old job once nowhere near the water!
  17. Bought this from Taiwan. First off, the book STINKS like moth balls or some preservative when I got it. Made the read not enjoyable. Not sure if all of them are like this. There are numerous typos in this book. If you have a lot of experience already I do not recommend this book. However, it’s a great book for the first timer just jumping into the hobby. Also great for people who want to know more on many species of beetles. Includes a very insightful chapter of Goliathus. The different species in this book are described in detail along with great pictures.

    Geotrupes sp. in captivity?

    Really an amazing looking species!

    Geotrupes sp. in captivity?

    Imagine using dog or human feces just to breed a beetle... reminds me of people keeping leeches and letting them feed on their arms etc.
  20. Bug Guides data says that in Minnesota, they are found in July. I would do light traps or split fallen, dead, decayed logs.

    right place, right time

    Beautiful. Wish they rained out Lucky Charms marshmellows. XD
  22. No other way to know than to put her in an egg laying container and wait a few weeks/months. Chances are higher with WC females.
