  1. My D Grantii larvae do this occasionally, and they've been perfectly okay. Not sure why grubs like to wander above the soil, but it definitely doesn’t always mean there is something wrong.
  2. Just a bit ago I removed a pinacate beetle from the freezer, which I intended to preserve after it had died of natural causes, and discovered it had released it’s stench! Or, not exactly stench, but a strange musty scent. It’s hard to describe, but it is similar to that of the smell mealworm beetles release when bothered. I was wondering if there was a way to preserve pinacates without triggering the smell. Also, I’m curious to know how they smell to those who have been sprayed. Wondering if the smell is different from person to person, because to me it doesn’t ‘stink’.
  3. Took some photos of a lovely herc I got last summer, and never got around to posting them! These are two of my best shots😁
  4. Sweet, thanks! And yes, I did try and sex it via abdomen spot and it seems to be female. Good to know that head size is also an indicator!
  5. I’ve recently noticed that one of my Dynastes Granti larvae has a considerably small head, in comparison to my other L3’s. Anyone know why this is? And what causes head size differences? For reference, the smaller-headed larvae emerged approx. 2-3 weeks earlier than the others.
  6. If it's within the states it's not likely to be caught, however if you are trying to receive the package from overseas there's a high possibility you'll get a knock on your door from some federal agents. I would not risk it unless you have a permit specifically for importing that species. Try finding a seller within the states, it's much safer that way!
  7. Haven't had much luck with finding any sort of large beetles on the trips I've taken to the coast, as there aren't many interesting beetle species in California to begin with. Although you might be able to find some various June beetles(and maybe some fig beetles if you are lucky!) during the summer months! I know there are also a good lot of darkling beetles here but they tend to live closer to the desert.
  8. Heya! Just another beetle fan from the sunny state of Cali! I currently own some death feigning beetles, and hopefully (crossing my fingers!) some hercules beetles! I definitely have a soft spot for scarabs, as those are my favorite beetles overall, but I also love stags and darklings. If anyone knows of any breeders that are in the US/will ship to Cali, please let me know! I’m always looking for new buggies :D
