Common name - Metallic Stag Beetle "Amethyst X Cyan"
Scientific name - Cyclommatus metallifer finae "Amethyst X Cyan"

The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a metallic species of Stag Beetle that infamous for being the record holder of the longest jaw size to body ratio. Large, major males possess mandibles that are almost twice the length of their body.

These are the offspring of a cross between two selectively bred pedigrees of this species. The father is of the special "Cyan" pedigree (bred for its cyan-blue body colour), whereas the mother is of the special "Amethyst" pedigree (bred for its purple body colour).

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Peleng Island in Indonesia.

There is no guarantee on how these offspring will end up looking as adults, but there should hopefully be some very interesting new morphs popping up based on the parentage!

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