InsectaJaeger888 posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHello everyone, I'm new to forum groups and online chatting but more than eager to get connected with the online beetle enthusiast community. I've studied a lot on US and Japanese stag, rhinoceros and carabid ground beetle breeding techniques and while I am well versed in the technical formalities and knowledge of such things I lack personal experience in the in field so to speak. While I was first introduce to the beetle hobby and collecting stag and rhinoceros beetles overseas in Taiwan for which I dream of breeding those gorgeous behemoths (although I am well aware and will stay well within the confines of legal parameters). Because of the laws and regulations restricting importation of exotic species I am looking for and focusing my attention on native species in the US. To be specific I'm looking to buy a breeding male and female pair of stag beetles ( Lucanus elaphus, Lucanus capreolus, Lucanus mazama, Dorcus brevis, or Dorcus parallelus,) or rhinoceros beetles ( Dynastes granti, Dynastes tityus, Strategus aloeus or Phileurus truncatus ). I do understand that I am way early in the season to be asking for adult beetles as they won't emerge until probably May but I do want to get connected with anyone who breeds and might be willing to sell a pair of either rhinoceros or stag beetles of any species.
