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 a metallic species of Stag Beetle that is the record holder for having the biggest jaw size to body ratio, with large males possessing mandibles that are two times the length of their body. This is a special bloodline where they have been selectively bred for their purple colour.

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

This species can take on a variety of colour forms as adults, ranging between purple, gold, and bronze.

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