Ratmosphere Posted February 15, 2015 Report Share Posted February 15, 2015 As we all know, some beetles go through life and get scratches along with wear and tear on their hard shells. An example of this would be the tan, fuzzy Megasoma species. They can start off all tan and by the end of their life cycle, they could have worn down their shell to the black part in some parts. I do not have this species but I have a similar situation in which this happened. This was due to the beetle lifting heavy logs and its shell was grinding against the tank causing some scratches. I know missing tarsal claws and legs can decrease the value. Would my scenario decrease the value of the specimen? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
