Mecynorrhina hatched out

Recommended Posts

Well, today marks the day that I have officially raised an exotic beetle to maturity. I am in Texas right now, but back in Georgia one of my mecynorrhina pupae has just hatched into a beetle! Super excited for this! And I cant wait til more hatch and theyre ready to breed! If you want pictures of them, youd have to ask me directly (though at some point in the near future Ill try to make a YT vid update.)

Congrats! Now I'm not sure what is more exciting, having your first exotic beetle emerge or being able to see it while you are in another state! Web cam? :)

Well, I sadly didnt get to see it hatch, but my parents who are back home told me about it and sent me pictures.

Progress: hes darkening out, and I think hes gonna be the same vivid dark blue as his dad!

Progress: color development is complete, and his horn has folded into place! Despite the fact that in every photo he looks like an exact copy of his dad, apparently he has green genes somewhere in there, as his thorax is a slightly bluish green. All other “colored” parts are blue. He also tried to fly today, an experience which none of my family are likely to forget haha.
