being my first grubs i received since being bitten by the beetle addiction,i actually didnt expect these to mature...was very surprised and happy to find some nice healthy beetles when i checked on them this week.

so far i have three,these two emerged perfect and one other emerged with extended wings and deformed elytra.

Congratulation!!!

You can probably sex them by checking the dent in the underside of the belly.

Males have dents while females don't.

thanks,next time they are both out i will have to take a look.

they tend to either be feeding or buried right now
