  1. Hi everyone, I am a first time owner of 9 Dynastes hyllus hyllus babies since I got them as L2s in May 2019. 3 of them have pupated (respectively in Jan, Feb, then Mar 2020). All girls, all beautiful and looking healthy. Just a few hours ago, the one that pupated in January has emerged. She did a stellar job growing up. Here comes my question: my other 6 are still in their larval stage, lying around doing nothing. What’s going on? They turned L3 months ago, around the same time as the 3 pupated ones. The 6 of them haven’t been eating for months (over winter), just like the other 3, only that they haven’t pupated. They haven’t even made their pupal chambers yet. They are still alive as they move around every now and then. I keep all of them at around 16-23C. As I suspected that it might have something to do with the temperature, I have since turned up the heat for them, so they are consistently above 20C. Please, if you know anything that might explain this situation, I would really love your help. Thank you so much for your support and for creating this amazing community.
  2. Hi everyone. I just started breeding beetles so I still don't know a lot of things. I heard they hibernate. Is that true? And how can I know they're hibernating? I have 2 males Coelosis Bicornis and a female Heterogomphus. Right now, is a bit cold here, and the beetles don't seen to want to get out of the cage. Actually, don't even get out from the soil, they stay there for days. What could that be? Should I be worried or this is normal? They stay under the soil just because it is cold or they're really hibernating?
