I can send adult beetles to UK addresses ONLY for the time being, due to the international delays with the coronavirus situation. Any overseas orders of adult beetles will be cancelled.

The listing is for 1x adult beetle, of the Chiron Rhinoceros Beetle which are characterised by their impressive 3 horns + metallic green colouration. This is the largest rhino beetle species in Asia, and grows 1.5x bigger than its cousin - Chalcosoma atlas.

These are wild collected animals I purchased for introducing genetic diversity into my captive bred culture. These surplus males have already mated with my captive bred females and are no longer required for breeding in my collection so I would prefer them to live out the rest of their lives in new homes. These adults are very healthy and are not missing any tarsi (legs), which would otherwise be a sign of old age. This stock originates from South East Asia.

The adult beetles feed on a variety of fruits such as banana, apple, pear, peach and watermelon. The larvae  feed on decaying wood and leaf litter.
