Bobochet Posted May 11, 2020 Report Share Posted May 11, 2020 Hi all, I've recently purchased a xylotrupes Gideon sumatrenis rhino beetle larvae. I've never owned an exotic pet before and even with countless searches I have not managed to find all the information I want. The larvae I purchased was an L2, but the packet said L3 - yet it's not the "yellowy" colour an L3 in the photos I've seen is, could it have been mislabeled? If it is an L2, how long could it take before it becomes a beetle? How do I know if my larvae had cocooned yet? Because I've read that I shouldn't disturb it when it does. I've currently got it in a tub with larvae substrate bought from a beetle website, I spray it every couple of days but it always seems to dry out - is the larvae going to be ok? I'm sorry for the barrage of questions, but there's lots of beetles and even with reading all the care sheets I could find on my particular one, these never seem to be answered! Thank you in advance for your help and knowledge sharing! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
