New beetle fan!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm Shannon and I'm just getting started in the beetle/invertebrates hobby!

 

I never knew you could keep beetles as pets, but I recently read an article on the hobby in Japan and was absolutely intrigued. I used to catch and keep Junebugs as a kid so raising beetles from larva is super exciting.

 

I currently have a dynastes tityus and a stag larva from bugs in cyberspace...and I already want more (they're very cute!) I hope I can raise them into awesome adults.

 

I have one very general dumb question- the larvae I received are L1 or L2 but there was no specification, is there a way to tell the age of the larvae without knowing when they molted or hatched?

 

Thanks so much! :D yay beetles!

Welcome, and yes there is, if you look online and see the head size for l1,l2, and l3 grubs you can compare them to yours and see which one seems to fit the most
