The listing is for 1x beetle larva, of a beginner-friendly species of Rhinoceros Beetle native to the highlands of Mexico. This is one of the five species of the smaller, North American group of Hercules Beetles. Their body colour is bright yellow and the thoracic horn of the males have an iridescent, golden undertone when shone under bright light.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Chilpancingo city, Guerrero state, Mexico.

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.
