BensBeasts1 Posted June 27, 2020 Report Share Posted June 27, 2020 I was getting oak wood from a stump when Pelidnota punctata suddenly came out of the ground. Previously the were Odontotaenius disjunctus, Euphoria inda, and now Pelidnota punctata. I knew to be careful and throughout collecting wood, I found 2 adults. I was about to leave, but then I saw movement, I then dug with my fingers to find another adult! When I looked carefully at it, it was injured by me! One of Its legs was gone, another leg didn't move around very much. And some reproductive parts were outside. I jumped into action to try to save the beetle the best I could. I remembered seeing a video where someone used glue to save a tarantula abdomen. So I got some super glue, and glued the part where his missing leg was so he didn't bleed anymore. Now I have him under my watch and as soon as he gets better I will release him. Should I do anything else? Should I have used some other glue. Do you think he will survive? Am I over reacting? IDK?
