  1. I dunno, If i could perfect hybridization I could potentially "discover" a new type and have it named after me. I'd follow this breeding pattern formula. What are the characteristics of a "Pure" Dynastes Tityus? I've observed D. Tityus larva with black face plates and reddish maroon face plates. Is one of these more of a "true" eastern? Or is this all just silly beetle racism? T = Pure Tityus, G = Pure Granti, H = Hybrid Gen 1: T + G = H Gen 2: first group H + G = H and second group H + T = H Gen 3: first H + T = H and second group H + G = G Gen 4: First group H + Second group H then hopefully at that point they would be viable...

    Finding beetles

    Can you elaborate on this? What kind of holes have you had success with?
  3. Yea I was talking about that web page! So how many generations did your hybrids remain viable for?
  4. I'm wondering if anyone has ever hybridized these Hercules beetles (or, frankly any other living thing) I'm wondering if the hybrids were viable or sterile, and how many generations. I saw online that in a large group of hybrid females only one laid eggs making a second generation of hybrids. I have no further info on how the second generation did.

    Unidentified Larva

    I dont believe it tends to dig or walk upside down.

    Unidentified Larva

    Heres a small larva I found today. Any idea what it is? https://imgur.com/a/VrQun4v
  9. Bonus points for mentioning species with very long larval lifespans!

    Wild Grapevine Beetle!

    Just some images of a beautiful grapevine beetle I caught! I really hope to catch more and rear them. https://imgur.com/a/9hUDNHJ

    Unidentified Larva

    Hello, I already posted these images in general discussions but I was hoping maybe I can get some more feedback on what larva this is! Found two in a fallen rotten log. https://imgur.com/a/LdOkGOG

    Osmoderma advice?

    I also discovered some of these bad boys. Information has been absolutely sparse. I heard they spend 3 years as larva and only 1 month as beetles. Something else I heard - dont ever handle the papal cells if you can help it. These beetles will not develop or emerge properly of their pupae cell is broken.
  13. Hello! I found two of this larva while digging into logs in Northern New Jersey, I was wondering if anyone here can help me identify them! They are certainly coleoptera scarabaeidae, I'm just not sure of the species. I suspect they may be May Beetles, but I'd like to hear what the community thinks!

  14. This is some fresh substrate I mixed using rotten Oak and some dirt from yard. That was a week ago. I checked on it this week and found this stuff growing on it. Could you guys tell me what this and if it is harmful to my beetle? Additionally I noticed small amounts of mold growing too. If this is dangerous let me know. https://imgur.com/a/nRkKUHI
