  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 . . .

    This is my spider beetle timelapse. Figured everyone here would enjoy it.

    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!

    Wow so many beetles in those containers, must be hard to open the container without escapes. 

    They don't climb smooth surfaces, so you could remove the lid and none would get out. 

  3. 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.

    If you're breeding them, who do you find the easiest to raise?
