Dynastes tityus size question


Recommended Posts

I have a granti male at 67mm, that tityus must be scary....it's a flying mouse!

That one took 2 years to go from egg to adult, and was reared on fermented oak sawdust.  He was one of several of comparable size from the same generation.

What is the possibility of your Dynastes Tityus larvae dying? Are fresh collected substrate in a cavity of a tree suitable for Dynastes Tityus? I've made hundreds of gallons in the past but most of them succeeded. This one batch that did this summer didn't turn out that great. I saw a Japanese research file about flake soil. It said to add a plant based protein and when I did so, it created green mold in 4 days. So, are fresh collected substrate in a cavity of a tree suitable for Dynastes Tityus? Thanks, Daniel.

Btw did you get eggs with him and a female? That is probably the biggest one someone ever showed us in beetle forum.  

Yes.  Please see the following post -

I've now had this culture for nearly 20 years.
