Friday 2nd Dec: I have broken my leg, and I will sadly have to close the store for Christmas from today as a result. All orders placed will be held back for delivery until postal services resume in January. My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

All mainland UK orders of live animals will come with a complimentary heatpack when night time temperatures are forecasted to drop below 5C.

  • Larva - the feeding stage

    The job of the larva is to eat and eat and eat. Food eaten at this time is stored as fats and larvae can grow 2000x their size during this stage.

  • Pupa - the transition stage

    When the larva is fully grown, it stops eating and becomes a pupa. It may look like nothing is going on but big changes are happening inside.

  • Adult - the reproductive stage

    The larva's job was to eat. The adult's job is now to mate and lay eggs. Most species of adult beetles get energy from tree sap and ripe fruits.
