  1. These are native to Florida (or a similar species) and I used to see them (and catch them) in Miami. I never tired to keep them. There used to be so many, it would look like Christmas lights in the trees. Over the years less and less would show up. I wonder if they can still be found out there anymore . . .
  2. I suggest contacting Peter (of BugsInCyberspace.com) as he has raised them. Check this out: https://shop.bugsincyberspace.com/Sleepers-Elephant-Beetle-bic899.htm
  3. That's a cool vid, somehow I missed it and just saw it! Thanks for posting! I still have my spider beetle groups that I got from you, actually, they have grown to be much larger than what I started with. They are one of my favorite beetles! They don't climb smooth surfaces, so you could remove the lid and none would get out.
  4. I think this auction is being held on FB. I'm not on FB, so I can't be apart of the Fall auction. However I'm always active on the Summer auction on TerraForums! 😊
  5. I got a bunch from cfredsma several years ago and they are still going. I Love mine too! Great photo!
  6. Gorgeous! Congrats on the nymphs! You've done well (and so have Papa and Mama roaches)! How are you keeping yours? Can you give us some details on their setup?
  7. If only I lived closer! I would love to work with inverts as a job again!
  8. I used to sell these years ago. Lived in FL and would catch them from my yard. If you post pictures of the adults I can sex them for you. But simply, females are larger, males are smaller. The tip of the abdomen in males is round and in females it's pointed.
  9. Does the 3rd edition cover any other types of beetles that the 2nd edition did not cover?
  10. You are welcome! If you join terraforums, look me up and say "hello". The name is the same.
  11. How is the 3rd edition different from the 2nd edition? Is the only change the two new chapters on Goliath beetles, and the one on Dynastes hercules paschoali?
  12. Terraforums.com is the best Carnivorous Plant forum I've found. Most members agree on ways to grow plants there and I've had much success with help from those members. Also a great book is: The Savage Garden. Good Luck!
  13. Super nice party attendance! If you're breeding them, who do you find the easiest to raise? Again, super photo, thanks for posting! ?
  14. I see grants rhino, eastern rhino and elephant stag . . . who else is in the mix?
  15. That is super fun! Great picture, thanks for posting!
  16. Sometimes they try too hard: A 3 stack. A 5 stack, with one about to join!
  17. Beetle? Yes. Family Meloidae?
  18. That title made me do a real "lol". Thank you for that! Anyway, good luck with your larvae.
  19. I got the email too. I'm more interested in the free book (as I have the 2nd edition), and asked if he would sell it.
  20. You'd be supprised, that fact does not dawn on everyone. Good Luck!
  21. I think I read that they like to eat . . . wait for it . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Grapes!
  22. If you come out to Savannah, on your way though GA, let me know! Either way, have an amazing trip and good luck on the move!
  23. For collecting anything in a National Forest, I think you need a permit. They should be around $20 or sometimes free. Good Luck!
  24. It's all good. Just helping ya out.
  25. Look for a thread called "Importing beetles in CA" on this website, and read the last post.
