Hey everyone! My name is Spencer Livermore. I am currently living in Utah, USA, where I am studying Biodiversity and Conservation. I volunteer at the Thanksgiving Point Entomology Lab and love breeding beetles in my small house where my wife is very supportive. I consider myself part of the new and upcoming generation of scarab enthusiasts/researchers! I fell in love with beetles while living in Japan for a couple of years, and I haven't been able to shake that love since. I am particularly fond of Goliathus species. I hope to keep adding to the amazing research done by Jonathan Lai
Hello, I read that Goliath beetle larvae eat high protein foods like dog or cat food and do not really eat rotten wood like Dynastes or Lucanus. Anyone care to speculate what their diet would consist in the wild? Would they just hunt around for insects? Would they eat dung? Where do they even live in the wild? Underground or in logs? Etc... Thanks!
