  1. Shrunk in length? I’m no expert but that should be pretty impossible since the beetle is an adult, right? I’m guessing you might have measured it differently but I’m interested to hear more about this case
  2. It’s nice to know he was doing it to protect the female beetle, thank you guys for letting me know!
  3. Hey, I just saw a post on instagram of a Japanese beetle breeder who for some reason which I can’t figure out, had like 3 zip ties on the mandibles of a dorcus beetle of some kind. The guy seems like he knows what he’s doing based on his other posts but I have no clue why he would do that to his beetle.. perhaps there’s a reason? Any ideas? Also worth mentioning that it didn’t seem like the zip ties were holding the mandibles together as one would to lobster claws with a rubber band
  4. Just wanted to say I’m not sure why you admitted so readily that you let your friend kill the beetle... on the beetle forum...
  5. I don’t know any breeders sadly but just going to say it’s awesome to have someone dedicated to the hobby here in the Detroit area, best of luck
  6. Hi all, One of my ox beetles has lived as an adult for over ten months. I know they usually only live as adults for around 3-4 months, so is this noteworthy at all?
  7. Hey that link expired sorry, can you send another one?
  8. That’s awesome, I didn’t know we had 6 stag species! And thank you, hopefully the ox beetles will get here safely. Do you keep any bugs at the moment?
  9. Hi there everyone, I’m fairly new to beetles and bugs in general, and I absolutely LOVE all sorts of stag and rhino beetles, as well as ironclads! I currently own four blue death feigning beetles, am trying to breed mealworms, and am keeping around 20 locally collected isopods of multiple species. Today, in fact, I ordered two Strategus aloeus Ox beetles and am super excited for them to come. I have an enclosure set up for them with coconut fiber, and have enough beetle jelly, but am not quite sure about what I should keep the humidity like. If anyone has experience with owning these, I’d be very grateful for some advice. Thanks everyone
  10. I would really like to know too, as I also live in Michigan!
