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 largest beetle species in the world, where the current world record specimen has been measured at just over 180mm.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Colombia in South America.

This is a different subspecies of the normally available Hercules Rhinoceros Beetle, which is more uncommonly kept in the UK. While almost reaching the same size, the wings are much lighter in colour than the normal Hercules and has fewer brown spots.

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.
