Very unusual lifespan

Recommended Posts

This is going to sound outrageous.


With only one exception (a female which died last week of old age), all of the superworm beetles that hatched last summer/fall and didn't die of unnatural causes are still alive today!


Any idea why they are living more than twice as long as their normal lifespan of four months? I keep them in oats and feed with various fruit twice a week when available.

One of my females lived over a year. It just seems like some individuals live longer than others.
