The Mantis Menagerie Posted August 22, 2018 Report Share Posted August 22, 2018 Does Lucanus elaphus require a hibernation period? I have a male that just eclosed a few days ago after less than a month in his pupa. He seems active, and his exoskeleton has hardened and looks normal (although one of his wings didn't expand properly). Should I put him in the fridge (is that too cold), or should I just keep him at room temperature and try to find him a mate? This is the first large beetle I have ever raised to an adult.
