  16. Awesome ! Great work Ometeo !
  17. Female right ? Is this sand ? Greetings, Mashku.
  18. Hello, in your video is the Larva time to short, try to show it longer, closer and from all sites.(front,back, etc). If this is a Eudicella, so i think you keept it to dry. Give the substrte more Humidity, like a towel, that you can press in your hand, but it don´t left any waterdrops. I hope you understand what i mean, my english is not the best... Has your Larva a brownish chitin plate on it Abdominalsegment ? And a last Profi tipp : Eudicella schultzeorum pseudowoermanni (Genus species subspecies) The right Way of writing is that the Genus is Big, the species smal and the subspecies is smal too. Give the larva some not to much Fishflakes, they love protein, and the result are biger Adults. But not to much, mites explode in the substrate ! Maybe 3-4 Flakes fot the two per week... maybe better 2-3 flakes. Good luck, Mashku.
  19. Very nice find ! Do you try to breed them ? Greetings, Mashku.
  20. Mashku

    Any ID?

    Hi, maybe a Ceruchus piceus !
  21. Hey Zero, wich kind of Dynastid is it? You can't keep all Dynastids at the same Temperature otherwise they will die. Example: Trypoxylus dichotoma and Dynastes satanas must be kept at extremly different temperatures. T. dichotoma can be keep at "warm"(23°C = 73°F) temperatures and it is deadly for D. satanas. They live in the mountains of Bolivia and it is colder there(max. 19°C 0 66°F). Greetings, Mashku.
  22. For the Love of Rhinoceros and Stag Beetles Second Edition For the Love of Rhinoceros and Stag Beetles Second Edition is dedicated to the keeping and breeding of Dynastines (rhinoceros beetles), Lucanids (stag beetles), Cetonids (flower beetles), Rutelines (metallic Beetles), and Euchirines (long-arm beetles). They are two Books in a Cover. Left you see The Dynastid Book, in the middle the Coversheet, right the Lucanid Book. Best Breeding Book i have ever seen.(i don´t seen all ; ) )
